1,2 step
1,2 step
Turn me around,
Look in your eyes ,
Our feet leave the ground.
1,2 times
1.2 times
2 is all we need,
2 chances at love,
Just you and just me.
Our second chance,
We messed up before,
Now we’re learning to dance.
1.2 step
1,2 step
Holding my hand,
I loved you before,
Now I love you again.
1,2 breathe
1,2 breathe
So scared that I’m wrong,
That you made a change,
I don’t want to move on.
1.2 you
1,2 me
2 is all we need,

The author's comments:
This is about a girl who is super nervous about falling in love again with her ex who is really all to perfect for her, the dance represents how the two lovers danced back and forth as two seperate people (1 and 2) over what they wanted untill they decide to be thogether at the end (notice the last two lines simply say 2 instead of 1 and 2 because they are a couple now)

Comments and feedback are SO WELCOME! thanks for reading!

This poem has really good rythm, and I love the repetition and how you changed the last word in the phrase. I'm not sure if the periods were used instead of the commas on purpose or if it was an accident. I'd watch out for that type of thing because everything can have importance in a poem, including punctuation.

Keep writing!

I picked up that you enjoy writing about love, and thats original. But your style is very different...in a really good way.

I write. Though whether that helps me keep my sanity or makes me lose it I shall never know.

I liked how it had sort of an abstract meaning and not just plain and out there. It's something you can get your own image of, or you can see it from the writer's eye. Excellent work!
