Viennese Waltz

Whirls and flicks her pearly dress to the music of the waltz

dances merrily to ​capture fleeting moments of euphoria

 

glides with wings of obsession to touch the apex

taps and turns with gentle moves towards the climax

 

throbbing heart creates a loud but rhythmic tune

swaying souls gathering closer on the fleckerl cues

 

sparkling eyes mesmerise her lover by degrees

whisks and twists to tantalise her feelings madly

 

holds her gently to unleash the pure ardour

entwined fingers transcend impuissant into splendour

 

Viennese waltz as yin yang magnetises two souls

dance in the moonlight converge them as a whole
