Without Music


When loving you is like dancing without music,

I wonder why—I wonder how I do it.

Two left feet; but I will get us through this,

One step forward, three steps back—

I can't keep doing it!


Loving you is like dancing without music,

I don’t know why and I don’t know how I do it.

I stumble, I fall, to get through the chorus,

I'd look like a fool to anyone who saw us.


But when there’s nothing I can do or say—

To change your mind or numb the pain,

As I know you can never feel this way that I do.

And I’m getting tired of being the one with a price to pay,

Every single fucking day,

Because you won’t love me like I wish you would.


Loving you is dancing without music,

I don’t know why I even do it.

But losing you and losing this is something I can’t permit,

As losing you and losing this is has no benefit.


Loving you is a dance without music,

I’m not sure if I can keep doing it.

All I know is now I need to feel all that love and emotion,

But do it this time by proceeding with caution.

Instead of free-falling in slow motion.

    this was a wonderful poetic treat
    and if you ever try to write in this style again, might be fun to create two diverse poetic voices in the one write, maybe each representing opposing views? I imagine it might be more work, but also more fun to attempt.. lol
    but what do I know, anyway
    I just wanted to say thank you for sharing, such a unique read
    (oh and psssst, you didn't underline the first I) lol
