Solo
Poetry By Gerard Haughey

the energy is gone
the last word of our song,
gone.

so much dancing
we did.
so much singing
we lived
together.

today we dance a solo
alone
I can't move these feet
anymore

where did it go?
the rhythm
the flow
the bond of our dance
holding hands

I drag myself around this room
I feel as though I love myself
and I feel as though I am unlovable,
unloved

alone
again.

I suppose with time
the sun will shine
I suppose
the rain will slow

maybe another Soul
will take to me
see something in me
feel.

til then I won't dance
I'll prefer to sit here
just stay inside my heart
to sew the holes, tares
this heart, the wear
I wonder what it beats for

hoping God will love me unconditionally
when my dancing shoes are worn away.
