The Waltz

Sat, 06/23/2018 - 19:46 -- niq-niq

Why do we do this stupid little dance?

It's very well coordinated and I know the steps by heart

But you don't seem to understand that with each twist and turn we destroy what we have

It's broken down into simple steps

You've formulated the perfect routine

You twirl around and tear me down

I swing and fall into your trap

You leap and break my spirits

You strut and break my heart

One-step

Two-step

This is the part where I trip

You grab my hand and we dip

The grand finale

But you let me go

On the ground, I see you smile

You take a step and reach down

See you again next week

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
