Jhane Reyes

(March 18 / Philippines)


Boundless ecstasy you shower in me
With tenderness gesture asking for a dance
It seems the world created just for us
Even the music missed what it was
Like a king and queen in a dance floor
I’m such a slave save by knight in shining armor
As if a gambler winning a man I’m longing for
Being with you is the best gift at all……
But rhapsody suddenly turned into a nightmare
When play the words and hit my ears
The whole world gave a sympathy tears
How could you break my heart?
I always tried to ask but no words come out
I wanted to scream and punch you but I am numb
My heart and mind start to lock and die
Emotionless, lifeless, you let me fall my love
A happy future of you and me is my fantasy
But believing we meant to be is completely zany
How could you ask for a dance just to hurt me so bad?
A DANCE is a deceitful way that gave me too much pain
A DANCE is deadly weapon used to stab my heart
A DANCE is an unfair reason to blow away my simple dream
A DANCE is a cursing moment and not worth to remember

    This poem has quite a few things, the beautiful dance as a King and Queen, the love and its charms and the ending on a sad note.......Good (Report) Reply

    The idea of blending dance of love with resultant broken heart is very good. Nice poem. Any poem that refers to the main idea by an indirect inference always sounds stunning and beautiful. (Report) Reply

    I recommend this because of the sincerety of feeling expressed in this piece.
    I also thought it was organized well. But sincerety was the key.
