I dance alone
Stocking feet on cold cement
Loose hair everywhere
Arms outstretched

I dance alone.
Fluttering dress and silken skirts
Spin and twirl
Until it hurts

I dance alone,
Radiant in a sunny field
Wind pulls me on
It will not yield

I dance alone.
A smile tacked on
To hide the rue
I dance a dance
That’s meant for two

Sometimes loneliness gets to us. The day I wrote this poem was one of those days.

My favourite part in this poem is the last stanza, especially the part "I dance a dance That's meant for two." I get a chill every time I read it because it is just so epic! You've got to be the next poet of our generation!
