Inspired by my first broken heart. Written long ago, though read by few. He reminded me a lot of Jack Kerouac's Dean Moriarty. Hence the inspiration.

It is the same dance.

Don’t ask Dean where he’s headed,
just feel with your hips.

A gentle embrace leads the same steps
too familiar to resist the rhythm,
in time, sweet caresses, evaporate
engulfed by seduction of scintillating pleasures
you succumb to the desires that taint your dreams.

You have learned the choreography
but you lost the count.

Distracted by sweet bliss it is difficult
to perceive beyond the rich tapestry
weaved for your aortic lens.
You cloak yourself in its inviting demeanor
lost in its elusive illusions,
you already know the answer, Mary Lou.

For the moment you savor the waltz,

as Dean leads you blindly by the heartstrings.
You think to yourself, perhaps,
You would rather Camille?

But no, don’t ask Dean.

He will never recognize the consequences
of his acts with a blindfold over his heart,
and his eyes full of lust.

He discloses his inanity in the lost tempo
when he steps on your toes
and breaks your heart.
