Will Someone Teach Me…?

I think I should learn to dance
So many analogies of beautiful things
Compare those things
To dance…

So why not dance?
Dancing can be beautiful
And beauty holds a connection to truth
(though what we could not say)
And truth is necessary
For real love-

both to give it
and to receive it.


Come What May

To dance another dance
Another twirl, another spin
Another dip, another bow
Another tale to be in.

To laugh another laugh
And make another smile
To share a funny joke
And feel free for a while.

To sing another song
Even if a dirge
To sing it all night long
Till a soul feels the purge.

Let the dreams be kept warm
And the fire warmer still
On the cold winter’s night
Where pain breaks the will.

This Dance

Dearest of the dear I beg you for this chance

I never thought that I might last to ask you for this dance

The lights are low and candles burn

Please let me take you twist and turn.


The moon is out right over there

I can see it looking past your hair

I can see it looking past your dress

Perhaps I’ve simply made a mess.


But you look so amazing here

And though I trip and stutter dear

I hope that you will take the time to see

What’s inside that I may be.


I dream that you can see a thing

Inside of me that I cannot

And love me from the first bell ring

As I fight this awful lot.


So let me have this dance tonight

And let it be the way you dream

And maybe I can last the fight

And maybe more if you would deem.
