The Dreamt Ball - Poem by Jennifer Morton

All around me are people in ball gowns and tuxs
And walls black as ever
I turn around quickly to see when I am
As I turn I hear ruffling
I look down to see me wearing a gown myself
The gown is as blue as the midnight sky
And as graceful as the queen herself
The gown is covered in lace that is blacker than room itself
The gown is sleeveless and accompanied by gloves exactly like the gown elbow-length
I'm caught in the middle of the floor with everyone dancing
Behind me I hear footsteps
Light and gentle but heavier than a womans
I turn around
Only to find him
The only boy from my school to whom I can relate with
His tux was formal
Black jacket black vest black pants black shoes
White shirt
Midnight blue tie
His black hair covered his right eye
But I could feel both staring at me with immense care
Slowly he smiled and asked, 'Would you dance with me? ' offering his hand
Smiling and reaching for his hand I answered, 'I'd love to.'
He pulled me close just as 'I'm with you' by Avril Lavigne started
I giggled as we danced
When the song was over and the clock struck 11 I sighed
He gazed at me questioningly
'I have to go'
And I walked away heart broken without another word
