She begged me to dance with her,
but I always rejected
Her request; now that dancer
Dances with my neglected;

She’s off with him—together
—and she leaves me forever.


The author's comments:
I was inspired by Bruno Mars's song "When I Was Your Man" and by "Dirty Dancing".

First, thank you for loving my taste in movies. I'm a huse movie buff. Your taste is great as well. I love every movie you chose. Second, thank you for liking this poem. And thank you a million times for thinking I'm a "spectacular writer"—God's ear to your lips—that means so so much to me. You too are a spectacular writer. I can't wait to read your future work.

Your movie taste is impeccable. c: I really, really enjoyed reading this. I like how the poem/song is simple but the meaning is so much greater. I tell you this on all the things I comment on of yours, but again, you're a spectacular writer! The picture goes well with it. The title is great. The whole thing is amazing.
