poetry by j matthew waters

Careless Whisper

I waited all day to reach out
for your hand
and you accepted
after already dancing
so many songs
in your pretty white dress

Reminiscing on the dance floor
we waltzed effortlessly
to a familiar ballad
our feet light
our eyes lost
as if looking through a mirror

april, two thousand twelve
