Our NaPoWriMo Project Poem for today is titled: Waltzing Alone

Waltzing Alone
(A song fragment)

3-4-time

Thought that I’d take a chance
Ask the old girl to dance
I’m not much to look at
She mostly just skin and bone

She listened and blinked twice
Sighed, said it might be nice
I could hear her thinking
He looks better than waltzing alone

We floated on – one, two, three
Held her quite close to me
She said slowdown cowboy
You won’t be taking me home

But that’s not where I meant to go
I’m happy just dancing slow
Let’s lean on each other
And freely let our thoughts roam

We met again in awhile
I’m learning to read her smile
Yes, this turned better
Better than waltzing alone
