Infatuation
Was the name of the tango
Our souls were dancing in the night.
Lashes to lashes, heart to heart,
Hesitation,
Flirtation,
Another bewitching temptation.
It is but a game,
A mortal one too:
Dear Soul, you poison me so,
And my heart aches to the rhythm
Of that tango.

I love the image you chose for this.

And this part:

"It is but a game,
A mortal one too:
Dear Soul, you poison me so,"

The playfulness is a nice touch.
