"Dance With Me"

Updated on August 23, 2017
"There's just no reason to dance when you're gone."
"There's just no reason to dance when you're gone." | Source

We shared a dance or two once,
in this dark and gloomy room.
I was entranced
by your impertinence.
There was no meaning
behind your presence,
no reason in your mind,
just a longing to be loved,
even though you could not love back.
So I danced with you,
until I fell,
but you did not catch me.
You let me fall to the floor,
and you left me where I laid.
Though I cried out,
"Dance with me."
you had had your fill,
and you left the dance floor
to seek a new partner.

      This is more beautiful than a dance :) So heartbreaking. Just leave that dancefloor, friend and get out under the stars. It's more romantic in there. There will always be that one person who will dance with you..

      I have had that experience of wanting a dance and the person leaves when spotting another person. How yukky is that? No girl likes that. Every girl wants to be swept off her feet....

      aww well Im glad I could put some heat into that cold heart. We all need a little human compassion, afterall we are human. even if we like to pretend that we arent. Thanks.

      Nikki, nikki, nikki, one dance with you and i would be in eternal bliss, letting you fall would never be an option, although my heart is as black as tar that paves the streets, this hub makes it regain a feeling for human compassion.

      thanks damian. i like that line too. I had to look up the word and make sure it fit lol. I surprise myself by how much vocabulary i know sometimes, like a line will just pop in my head with a certain word Im not quite sure of the meaning and I look it up and it usually fits lol. exactly what i was looking for. Thanks so much!

      "I was entranced --- by your impertinence,"

      What a line!

      This one stopped me in my tracks but having read the whole poem again, it is all beautiful ... there is a lot of tenderness and vulnerability here but also great strength. It has depth, vitality and a little bit of bite too, really top work!!

      no i agree with u H.A. I dont just trust anyone right off the bat. but sometimes its better to confide in a perfect stranger than someone youve known your whole life. Im always cautious and my guard is always up unless im absolutely positive its ok, but my motto is you can never trust someone 100% because everyone lies, or lets you down at some point.

      Aww thanks MrD. I know you wouldnt. You and bb will always be my hub dance partners! lol

      and Doug, he does exist, but in a time long ago. Ill gladly let everyone of you go bloody him up for me still though lol. Thanks.

      Ouch. Descriptive and gripping way to elaborate on how someone has left you high and dry. Your words are so enchanting, you likely have 20 hub-gentlemen ready to go out and bloody this person's nose for you. Thing is, he may or may not exist. Doesn't matter; all the boys are fired up and ready to swoop to your aid. Nicely done.

      Interesting read, Nikki, know that if i was your dance patner, enough i don't really dance, i wouldn't let you fall or leave you behind shedding a tear, lol.

      well i believe its better to err on the side of caution rather than throwing your cards out on the table. but hey, thats my opinion based on my experiences. you don't have to agree ;)

      well not always, youd be surprised how many people can relate, and how much just talking to someone helps, but i tend to keep my problems to myself also. but i also give lots of advice and my opinion on things, and i guess am sympathetic in a way, more like empathetic cuz i usually can relate, but Im defintely not phoney about it. I just speak from the heart. lots of people are phony though. im not a big people person.

      nah, i don't like people sounding all sympathetic. it only shows how phoney they are. lol.

      thank you everyone so much. H.A i didnt know but that sucks, thing is we have the ability to get up and find new partners too rather than lie there and wait around for someone that aint coming back. and if they do, well they dont deserve us for leaving us in the first place.

      and bb I would gladly have this dance with you, on hubpages eternally, til the very last hub.

      Ketchup, I believe I already Have, thanks for stopping by.

      Awesome poem! Love it!

      Don't worry, you'll find your dance partner soon. Someone that will be able to dance with you forever. Someone that will never seek for someone else to dance with :)

      Oh to dance with you, my incredible friend Nikki.

      What a magical interlude that would be.

      But the thing about me

      Once a dance partner, always a dance partner, you will surely see..

      This dance if you please...
