[Poetry] The Dance


Step by step,
Hand in hand,
Dancers move,
Across the floor.

Eyes ahead,
Bodies close,
Hearts beating.
Far apart.

Music plays,
Dresses swirl.
Colours play
All unreal.

Clasping waists,
Open lips
Yet the thoughts
Never meet.

Eyes away,
Staring blank.
Till another
Flares anew.

Quickened step,
Beating heart.
Eyes aflame
Someone new!

Dance, skip, twirl!
Movements whirl.
Spin, skip, jump!
Turn about!

Safety still.
Spinning back.
Hands entwined,
Hearts that crack.

Step by step.
Hand in hand.
Dancers still,
Across the floor.
