Dancing With You - Poem by Daniel Erdner

The dance of love and lust
Infatuation and trust
Willing to be more
but finding time for less
Busy life, soon to be ex-wife
Kids and work, school and recovery
Jumbled emotions and responsibility
Questions I'm afraid to ask
Is this for real, is it healthy?
Do I want you more than you want me?
We've had our fun but not enough
Is it time to run or play it tough
How did it happen, I've fallen very hard
Can I protect your tender feelings
And forget about myself
If we make it work it is together
If we fall apart maybe we didn't try
I cannot let you know how I feel
Keep it cool and play it safe
The nature of attraction,  
I back off, you'll want what you don't have
The challenge of the hunt
In this game I'm an amateur
I don't always know what to do
What to say, who to be
I sound so stupid, I just need to be me
What made you fall for me at first
It is your attention and companionship
        For which I thirst
An exploration of desire
How could I need you so much?
You've introduced me to who I want to be
Is that why I don't want to let you away
        From me?
I want to take care of you but you are
You don't want us to be hurt
         And you're not wrong
You'll never find another man
Who loves you like I do
I don't love you because you're beautiful
You're beautiful because I love you
