Dancing Poem by Meli McCollum

Dancing



We've danced before,
But only in my room,
With Mitski or Melanie Martinez playing,
Or the playlist we made for each other,
And those songs we danced to slowly became our songs,
Only swaying back and forth staring at each other,
Laughing and kissing,
I would love to dance with you in a formal place,
Be there with all the people we know and slow dance,
Your at a college at the moment, being a smarty pants,
Taking way higher classes,
Learning a lot,
They have dances every Friday,
The first dance the held you kept a polaroid of me in your pocket,
Saying the only person you ever wanna dance with is me,
The second one you called me,
Telling me you where lonely with no one to dance with,
So we laughed through the phone as we sang the songs together,
Everyone thought you were recording most of the time,
You weren't embarrassed to be on the phone,
Or say it was your partner,
They all waved at me,
And you stared at me during the slow songs,
It was the most sweetest gesture,
Yet it was so simple,
But it made me so happy,
Made me feel so loved,
We should go dancing sometime.
