Dancing and Talking (Free verse) by steven adams
So my girlfriend and I go to this club, right?
And when we get there everyone is dancing
And having a blast
And I ask her to dance
And she looks into my eyes and says
"I'm afraid to dance"
And what she doesn't understand is that I'm afraid too
We are sitting in the dark talking
And I look over to her
And she is so beautiful in the moonlight
At this moment there is nothing
And everything all at the same time
There are so many questions I want to ask
Like "How did you ever become so strong in such
a delicate frame?"
But I sit in silence
And wonder about all the things that could hurt her
And all of the things that could make her happy
Where did this fire come from?
Suddenly I realize that I have misunderstood her for all
She has become strong from all the fighting
Fighting against everyday and every moment
And I quickly realize the true meaning of beauty
