Commentary on Argentine Tango

So, this poem was inspired by my love for the Argentine Tango.  This seasons Dancing with the Stars was sensational.  My favorite dance was always the Paso Doble until this season, now my favorite is the Argentine Tango.  It's so intense that I decided to use its inspiration to write this poem about the "relationship" I had with the guy the poem "Not Ready" is about.

I have quotes around relationship because it wasn't an official one, we were trying to figure out if we were on the same page or not.  We were not!  It took me 8 months to realize that my first impression of him "Not Ready" poem was correct and that he isn't the one for me.

So what's my valuable insight: go with your gut feeling.  It's probably gonna be right 99% of the time.  I'm still learning the concept and I'm 40 years old.  Wow!!! My true love is currently incognito but hopefully that will change within the next year, lol.

I realized that when you truly love someone, you don't find fault in what they do, you don't find things you can't tolerate.  You are willing to work with them wherever they are in their life.

I have got to mention the book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" by Steve Harvey, helped me also in my decision to cease and desist this relationship.  Actions have got to match up with the words they speak.  So talking a good game but not having the game to back it up is a big eye opener.  Not going to sell myself short anymore.  Argentine Tango poem
