Dance With Me
"La-di-da, La-di-da" Her voice taunts me in the night. "Come sing, come sing" She teases in the day. "Twirl with me, twirl with me" Her broken mind exclaims. "Spare me, oh spare me" She whispers in my ear. What does she want? I need to ask her Doesn't she realize I can't, Can't feel her? "Dance with me" She demands, grabbing my hand Her icy cold grips Floods me with panic How? How? Why can I feel her now? What does she want? She twists me and spins me, all the way around I glide her and lift her over and over again I can't speak, can't move Save for these only routines "Dance with me, dance with me" She repeats, never-ending I'm afraid, so afraid What if I'm dancing forever? No one else can see her, Only I But to everyone else, I'm dancing with myself "Dance with me, dance with me" She breathes to me. Can I break out of this spell? On that final note Of the music playing in her head That I can't hear She ends the dance But still, to my horror I find my feet still tapping.
