Dance Me

For midnight music happy hour
in freelance emotion
of my unfettered joy
I love to dance so much
that in humiliation I would ask,
dance with me beautiful one
who looks around for a better partner
and I must say thank you
because it would not be proper
to dance alone
though I love to escape
to the rhythm of freedom
beating ecstasy
with flying notes to heaven
that sing syncopated flight

Music love me
who else will
past midnight
