Chivalry is Dead

I’m inviting you, to break it down,
to feel the beat, the heat, to play my game.
It’s a midnight sport, where our bodies pound
the floor, we see ourselves without names.

We act, out our affection. The redlight
rhythm raps our script, stuck on repeat.
That guy and girl grinding to invite;
you and I delight in spite. Repeat.

My mission, sole ambition, is to
please you, tease you, feed my fire, this desire.
Be mine this time, I’m hung up on you –
caught up in the game of cat and mouse.

We behave in ways, to some, cliché.
Our midnight soirees, take the pain away.
