Dancing, It’s You

It’s you again

I thought we were done

You forgot to say it was over

After months, I stopped waiting to hear the words

For weeks I begged for why

You only got angry for my asking

Preferring the silence of disdain

Knowing you could hurt me more this way

Yet here you are

Wrapping yourself around my heart

Disturbing my peace

Winding through my nights

Pulling me from my isolation

As if I have nothing better

Nothing to occupy my time

It’s you again, damn

You said you were gone

Out of here, like fog burning off in sunlight

No matter, the fact is you were gone, finally

You chose to leave without word of your going

Yet here you are again, drifting in as you do

It’s you again, damn

I will have to do a better job

Strengthen my fortifications

Keep you locked away with the rest of my demons

I am not yet ready to dance with you

Not in my dreams or any other times

You said we were done

I wish my heart remembered

  1. Beautiful!
    Val, I’m trying to get ahold of Red. I messaged you on FB Messenger and LinkedIn. Any help is appreciated. (Sorry for using this space here to reach out about it, as I don’t know any other place to ask you, and my emails to Red bounced back, and she’s not seen my FB or LinkedIn messages).

  2. Wow! I love this, Val.
