Dance With Me!


I cut my foot!

i cut only in a delirious dance
and, then, opened a vein
my vessel of blood was contained
by an white unknown man

I was rewarded!
with 2 points for remember
And 1 point in my soul
by the stranger
who stanched my blood
hold me and told me
you will never be real
in this lonely dance
dance with me!

    Indeed that is a dance, a dance I know all to well, roles reversed of course where the man comes in, it is instead a woman. Truly I can relate to this poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
