✍🏻 2 2 Tango

  When rift did cleave our deep intimacy
  I kept my fears at bay determinedly
  I felt time would heal us gradually
  I let it tick and tock digitally.

  Then, hours became days & my fears flared
  My moody baby’s rendered me blacklisted
  My lady lovely, has rendered me blocked
  My body became tense and tormented.

  Then, the fears did grow to be fully fledged
  The flight’s so stark and highly escalated
  The plight’s pure torture, I lie paralysed
  The light’s very low, it’s almost faded.

  But to concede defeat I cannot do;
  For you’re my 💖 and thus I must pursue.

I carry you everywhere I go

I hear you everywhere I go

I see you everywhere I go

p.s. The phrase, it takes two to tango, implies a situation in which two people are paired in an inextricably-related manner.

p.p.s. The film, Last Tango in Paris can no longer be comfortably viewed as artistic erotica, see, e.g.,:
