Our Last Dance

Published February 23, 2012 by atirahjewel

Oh what I would give to hold you again,

Everything,

I remember clearly,

That time we spent together,

Not knowing it would be the last,

How perfect the evening was,

Feasting on the most delicious food,

Reminiscing the times we had with each other,

I was gazing dreamily at the ring you had given me,

It was simple yet more beautiful than any other you could have got me,

Inscribed on it were the words of your love,

Wrapped in each other’s arms we danced,

We spun and twirled until our feet became sore,

My knees were so weak,

I was sure I would fall,

But caught me with your lips,

And carried me to a place to lie,

You held me then,

You said you wouldn’t let go,

Your whispered promise echoed in my mind for hours,

A promise you would come to break,

Leaving me cold all alone,

No longer kept warm by your embrace,

You let me go,

All I can think of is when we danced,

Our last dance,

At the time I didn’t know it,

But I do now,

You will not love me anymore,

You scattered my broken heart on the floor,

And left me to pick up the pieces,

So cruel of you,

Yet I cannot hate you,

I can only think of that night,

When we drank and we kissed,

When we held each other and your promise,

But one thing returns to my mind the most,

Over and over breaking through every thought I have that doesn’t include you,

When we danced,

Our last dance,

So clumsily graceful,

The one thing in this world I will probably never forget,

The other half of my soul,

And the best night we have ever spent together,

Was also unknowingly the night,

Of our last dance.

    • Effect. Thank you for the suggestion but I don’t normally like putting commas anywhere besides the end of the line. I know you meant well but you might have liked to have said some thing more like “Here’s an idea, why not put a comma after “oh” at the top?” Thank you again for suggesting though.🙂
