Dance In The Dark - Poem by Walter Dapliyan

I got two left feet.
Yet I dance.
I dance alone in the dark.
Each step in rhythm with
The gentle patter of rain
In my head.
But missteps I make when
The gentle rain turns
Into a storm in my head.
I sway as the grass sway;
Back and forth
With the breeze
In my head.
But swept away are my feet
When the breeze turns
Into a gale in my head.
Still I dance.
I can't dance in the light.
So I dance in the dark,
For I got two left feet.
