Dance Me Down

A Poem By Bridget // 1/12/2010

It’s time to move.
Leave me alone, let me dance.
I’m not your girl, I’m not your friend.
You don’t have a chance.

I don’t have time for you.
Just let me breathe a minute.
The music is intoxicating;
Ten minutes will do it.

Dance me down
If you can.
Make it loud,
Make it fast.
Get it now?
I can dance
Dance me down.
Dance me down.

Can you do it?
Move, dance, live the beat.
Catch the irony.
Close your eyes, let yourself feel it.

Make me move.
If you can,
Get it down.
Can you dance?
Dance me down
Do it now
Dance me down.
Dance me down.

Go away
You’re too  persistent.
I told you to go
But you’re insistent.
I told you to go,
But you think you can
Dance me down.

So dance me down.
It’s a dare.
Try it now;
I don’t care.
I don’t think
That you can
Dance me down.
Dance me down.

This is really good, dear. It paints such a vivid picture of the feelings that would be swirling inside the speaker. My favorite line is Close your eyes, let yourself feel it. Just like a song :)

Thanks!  I actually had problems with that verse.  It didn't quite fit with the rest.  But I'm glad you like it.

I love this! I'm so sad that I'm rarely able to catch any of your lovely postings :-) My favorite part was: 

"So dance me down.
It’s a dare.
Try it now;
I don’t care."

I don't know why, I just like it!
