Can I Dance?

Can I Dance?

A Poem by Dusty

What can I do when my heart is ready but I am still afraid?


How can my heart be lonely?

I thought after this all,

it was cold.

I thought love has grown old.

But here it is, beating again.

It is ready to move on

but am I ready to begin?

My heart jumps and sings

and wants to love once more.

But my mind warns and cringes

remembering being trampled to the floor.

How can a heart move on?

How can it heal so fast?

Why does it want to go?

Can't it go slow?

Apparently I have healed

and am ready to dance again.

But will I be able to move my feet,

when I am afraid to let my heart beat?

I really like this!!! It shows that hearts do mend yet the fear of being hurt again can make one timid about moving on. But there is hope flowing through this poem too as the heart jumps and sings, and wants to dance. Very well penned.
