How We Dance

How We Dance

A Poem by clairvoyantmars

Alone in my distant longing
The pitiful air I'm donning
I close my eyes and wonder
In loneliness I ponder
How it feels to dance with you

Maybe one night at evening
Love, this I'm just foreseeing,
We'll walk towards the dance floor
The world around is no more
What does it feel to dance with you?

Will you put your arms around my waist
And cradle me in safe embrace?
Will we gaze upon each others eyes
And speak in only soft replies?
Oh, I want to dance with you.

Will we be so close together
Like the last we saw each other?
And between the soft sweet kisses,
Steady breaths and stolen glances
When will I first dance with you?

At gentle pace you'll guide me
And leave the past behind me
The world is just two people
Magical, unbelievable
Is this how it feels to dance with you?

And to grasp the music's last note
I'll kiss you and tighten my hold
You'll ask: "Anything the matter?"
And in your ear I will whisper:
"I know how it feels to dance with you."

Congrats for placing in my competition!! I really enjoyed reading this, it reminded me a lot of 'The King and I' for some reason. I am not usually a fan of romantic poetry but this left me with a a real warm feeling instead of a cheesy one and when I logged off after first reading it I kept thinking of how beautiful and humble it was. I think you really did an amazing job here, nice work!

I really enjoyed this. You captured the moment perfectly and I felt like I was dancing myself. This was so beautiful and pretty that it made me smile. Very good job.

I liked the first stanza the best, and the beginning of the last stanza. the overall idea of the poem was really good, although I dont really like how you ended the stanzas the same way. And the middle of the poem just blended into itself...
