Are We Dancing Yet?

by Unseen Exposure   Nov 20, 2004

It's beautiful the way your hand beams from the light in the ceiling
It's amazing the emotions I endure from this feeling
It's like I've never felt any pain, as if my heart never skipped a beat
As if the world we stand on stopped turning beneath my feet
And everyone stopped to see-
Are we dancing yet?

The music whispers a soft melody and I slowly close my eyes
Tonight there are no screams, tonight there are no cries
You took my hand and lead me onto the floor beneath the stars
Grabbed my waist and glided, time was only ours
And everyone stopped to see-
Are we dancing yet?

Life wisped by me as a tear rolled down my face
For once, I was smiling, I felt love in your embrace
Careful, weaving movements as we tiptoed across the floor
One step forward, one step back, every surface to explore
And everyone stopped to see-
Are we dancing yet?

I took a deep breath and smiled, and opened my eyes to see
Only darkness, only pain, and you were not with me
I didn't understand, you were gone, vanished without a trace
And I was lonely, and lost in this long forgotten place
And no one was there to see-
Did we dance?

I was cold, scared, confusing images broke my stance
Were you ever there, was it real, did we ever dance?
Had you taken my hand, had you ever given me the chance?
Somewhere inside the song, we must have lost our balance
Tell me-
Did we ever dance?

I remember that one night promise "Lend out your hand, let's go
You're beautiful, I love you, I just want you to know"
But suddenly it hit me, when I saw the empty bed
And everything came back to me, they day they pronounced you dead

You said our dance would be on hold until we met again
You kissed my hand and said "I'll see you in heaven"
Tears fled to my eyes, and I remembered being alone
I remembered how your absence chilled my every bone

And I know it was wrong, but without thinking, I grabbed the knife
Straight into the heart, it stole the oxygen from my life
"Find the strength to forgive me, in God's name I pray
I could not live without you, not for one more lonesome day"

You flew me into paradise, took my hand and said "Let's dance"
Today it was our turn, right now it was our chance
Laughter filled the heavens, and we kissed like never before
As angels wings soared above our misting cloud dance floor
And I didn't have to ask you-
Everyone turned to see-
We were dancing.

    Beautifully written :) i loved it. I could just see the clouds in Heaven and the angels. I could hear the fluttering of angel wings. I could hear the tear fall from your cheek. I could hear it and see it all. Good imagery. You're a very talented writer and I hope you continue to write :D
