Two people meet
Face to face
On the dance floor of life
Once they were lovers
Now just friends
He bows
She curtsey
In the background a slow melodious tune starts to play
Hand in hand
Step by step
They move in time with one another
Round and round
Accuracy and percision
Doing the dance of the angels
Enraptured
Their eyes are locked
Breathing rhythmically
Desire to be with one another shows through and through
You can hear her heels click lightly on the floor
While his suit tails rumple in the breeze
Their minds remembering the beat
123 123
Waltz
He dips her graciously
When the song finally comes to an end
He’s in his bed
She’s in hers
Was it real?
Dreams upon endless dreams of their chance to be together again for one last slow dance


Love,
Lady

Live in my world just once and you'll find yourself enraptured.

WHEW! This is well written! They say that dancing is just the vertical application of a horizontal idea. Your poem proves that out very nicely.

I do believe the Revered Elder is exactly right.

I love this. I could see the floor as you and he danced around it. Beautiful imagery and style. I do hope I get to read some more of your material soon.
