I’ve lost him.
Today, I danced for him,
But there was another present.
His lips brushed hers,
Her hands touched him.
I’ve never seen him so happy.
They were together in ways I could never dream.
Their eyes sang beautiful songs together.
No matter the music though, I didn’t feel much like dancing.
Darkness came to my world, and like that I froze in place.
If he ever returns for me, I will be so very happy.
I will be waiting for him with bright eyes and a cheerful smile.
My heart runs for him and for him alone, and not even this stranger
Could ever, ever take that away from me. I would journey the earth for him.
But until he decides to wind me up again, my world will return to the cold darkness.
Such is the fate of a tiny dancer.

Love part 2 of this set!?! When you wrote the first one, did you know there would be a part two or did the original poem haunt you to write the next?
I had a sinking suspicion I would, but it wasn’t really planned.
