Don't Stop The Dance

Don’t Stop The Dance

Don’t stop the dance.
Who was it said that the dance was the body, dreaming?
Sometimes words will dance from such a wilder-ness,
stirring, wraithed in music, or emerging
from behind a New Moon, seeping into 
my wakefulness.

Always there is longing, shaded by loss.
Let us dance away our tunes of despair
into places of loving; and speaking of loving - 
Don’t stop the dance.

Cait O'Connor

Apologies to Brian Ferry but I swear to you that as I sat down to type up this already written (but untitled) poem, this song came on my random player.  Thank you angels.

This is very inspiring. Dance is expressing one's self. There are tons of way to dance. It's up to your preference.
