My Lover


It has been an unexplainable, all-consuming, untamed, all-or-nothing, love-hate affair.

I knew from the very first instant. He swept me off my feet, suddenly, instantly, completely. Without so much as a cloud of warning, he stormed into my life, seduced me and made me his in a way I can never belong to anyone else.

He is relentless, my lover. He will never let go. He disappears, sometimes for long enough to lure me into thinking that maybe this time it will be for good. My soul longs for him, like a wild river for the sea, but maybe this time I will break free of his intoxicating grip, at last.

As a hurricane wind, he swoops back to claim his place in the very core of my heart, which he then leaves behind in pieces. I feel his grip again, tightening around my being while I let him in with painful, sweet surrender... I close my eyes, part my lips and once again, I am his. With every fiber of my being, with everything I am. He leads me into ecstasy. We become one.

And then the pain again. As in an addiction, I am ever recovering from this intoxication, ever succumbing anew... He can be the gentlest, most attentive lover and awaken every part of me to something I never knew before. Knowing every nuance of my body and soul, playing me like the most exquisite instrument, he can make me feel happiness so intense that it hurts. Then leaves me open, like a wound, naked and torn...

When he is gone, I look for him behind flat faces, hoping he will apprear as out of a cruel joke, console me like a child, hold me into his arms, steal my breath again and give me the bliss I have become to know so well... When he finally comes back to me, I forgive. As I always will.

A perpetual story of love and passion. I envy those who haven't known it. And I pity them.

My lover has had many faces, many voices, many embraces...

And one name.

El Tango.

Hey, WAIT a minute!!! He's MY lover!

But I'll share :-)

Wonderful post, BTW. All silliness aside.

Malena said...

Oh, fine! OUR lover. Let's face it, there are many of us. Which gives me an idea for another post, think about all those just beginning, wide-eyed, still in the honeymoon stage, poor unsuspecting women! There should be some sort of a consent form before people's first tango lesson: You are assuming all responsibility for what is about to happen to you, please think carefully before engaging.
Thank you, Johanna! Hope all is well, we missed you,
Xoxo

LOL! Doesn't every milonga have an "Enter at your own risk" sign next to the entrance????

Well, I do not share your "lover", but I do share your passion. :-) I have just started a blog on Tango in Paris, city in which I just moved. I will put my comments on the French milongas I will visit and describe my nightlife activity as a Tango DJ. Visit my blog from time to time, if you are in the mood ... Un abrazo!

Malena said...

Dear DJ Mauringo!
I am glad we are sharing a passion, if not a lover :)
I will definitely be checking your blog, especially because I might be in Paris for a few days this summer and have to find out more about the tango scene there. Keep in touch and besos from both!
Malena

DJ Mauringo said...

Well Malena, I am sure that you will not be disappointed about the tango scene in Paris ... there are plenty of milongas every night! When you are in Paris, contact me and I will try to show you the best places! Un abrazo

Hello fellow tango dancer!

I think you would be interested in KnowTango.com -- the world's first wiki-tango map where anyone can add or edit events.

If you see an event that has wrong information or is missing, make sure to fix it. The site is totally free with no ads, so hopefully it's something the worldwide (and your local) community can use and enjoy :-).

Take a look and let me know what you think!
-Henry

Malena said...

What a fantastic idea, Henry! We've needed this! Let's keep it up. Malena

Henry said...

Thanks for the kind words Malena.

It's about time we had a single, free, centralized resource for all tango dancers everywhere. Hopefully we've made it easy to use (and a little fun too ;) ).

When you have a sec, can you check your community and make sure all the information is complete and correct? It would also be awesome if you told your fellow dancers so that we can spread the word quickly.

Thanks again, and happy dancing!

Hi, we just started a new blog on tango history...each day we post an event that
happened that day in tango history...it can be the birth of a famous singer,
composer of poet, the debut of a film or the recording of a famous tango song...
you can even search tango principles according to their sun sign

Can you help spread the word by letting your students know about it or placing
a link on your blog...there is no advertising or money involved...we're
not selling anything, we simply love tango and in particular tango history...we
welcome any suggestions.....

If you come to Rome, please let us know...we would be glad to welcome you

My name is Mr Cardenas,my wife was having affair with a senior secretary in her office. I love this woman so much that i would not want to share her with any body. i told her to retire from the job and i would take care of all her needs but she would take it because she is been embraced by everybody in her office, this normally leads to quarrel every-time. i tried all i can to please her and she will promise to be good , some days later she will turn back to her normal way.
i was nearly loosing out, i could not focus in my job, my whole life was full of sorrow and i was thinking i should kill the other man my self and put an end to all this until i saw a testimony from a blog on how DR EDIONWE could cast a love spell to bring lovers back no matter what is behind the disappointment. so i decided to write him via email. edionwesolutiontemple@yahoo.com and now all my wishes are exactly as i wanted. She told me everything that has happened secretly in the past and i forgave her as DR EDIONWE instructed me to and she loves me and care for me as i ever wanted. i know there are many spells that do not work but i want to assure all you out there no matter what you have been trough to have faith and believe that this is the final solution to your problem.
Even if my job is taking most of my time, the little free time i have , i will share the good news to everyone in the world because i know that with love brings happiness and hope for a long life.
