Dancing With The Gambler

Hands are grasped
In an unsure embrace
Smile tugs at twitching lips
As we stand face to face

Heart beat skipping
Encaptured in a cage
Eyes glued to eyes
Thoughts are engaged

Magnetic pull on smiles
Eyes flitter with joy
Standing in a crowded space
Just a girl and just a boy

Uncertainty echoes round
A risk of many stakes
Standing hand in hand
It's a risk you got to take

Beat to beat we step
In a rhythm of our soul
An aching sense of longing
Gapes in a raw hole

Each coy smile caught
With knowing gaze and wink
I know it's more than just a faze
As cheeks warm to pink

Breathing hard with laughter
We spin around this room
Forgetting the fact
It's got to end soon

As the music dies
And reluctant hands do part
I smile to myself
I know that it's a start

Quiet words are spoken
Eyes locked in embrace
Though the dancing has ceased
My heart still does race

We part with careful smiles
Eyes meet with a kiss
And as I head away from him
I know it's worth the risk.

I'm at awe of your ability to rhyme sooo well!! I could never do a thing like that and keep the rhythm perfectly.
Your a master poet!

Thank you. (: It's quite different from my other stuff, as in the fact it's actually quite cheerful, haha. I appreciate your comments and opinions very much. Thank you.
