Afrobeat – A poem

Afrobeat, on a street corner where we meet

the sway of my skirt catches your eye,

oh my surprise!

Spring is here baby, you smile.

Tap tap tapping my foot to the rhythm so divine.

I closed my eyes and dreamt of cascades rising above me.

It’s our secret our special place our little paradise.

So nice… as my hips sway from side to side, I glide towards you, shake my head, snap my fingers and close my eyes and there I am dancing… dancing…

romancing the skies with my thighs.

This sublime rhythm of mine

caught your eye

as I sway from side to side.

Hey you!!!

I open my eyes. Rude awakening in a long cemented corner of my mind. Cracks letting in the light.

The past transgressions and obsessions faded into the night sky. Planted in the cosmos as reminder of my self hurting lines.

Past lives.

Unrequited reflections.

No longer eager to waste my time.

Settled in the rhythm of my own life.

as I sway my hips from side to side

A sense of pride.

as you slide your arm down my thighs I devise a plot to envelop you around my mind.

we’re dancing, dancing romancing the skies.
