A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


it's just another song sung blue (or jukebox rejection)

 

 

i asked you to love me

and you politely declined

 

so i searched for another dance 

but never got into rhythm

 

i was still moving

to the thought of you

Very sad the words...Sometimes we are so sure of the dance that we begin moving way before we should. Perhaps, the cues were all wrong. I could picture it all so well.
