Dancing Without You - Original Poem by Elle Smith


Dancing Without You 


Dancing and spinning,

now alone without you.

My world has crumbled,

as I feel lonely and blue.

We twirled and my heart

gently floated on air.

Within your strong arms,

I had no worry or care.

It was like being wrapped,

in bubbles of cotton wool.

You were my comfort,

as a blanket or even a snood.

The cold world outside,

disappeared and was not there.

You holding me tightly,

is simply beyond compare.

It’s always nice to have those arms where you forget about all your troubles. I definitely know about the pain that comes with those arms leaving. Excellent poem!

This is beautiful! I can completely relate to the feelings in this poem and it’s beautifully said. My favorite line is: “in bubbles of cotton wool”, so descriptive and it really gives you a sense of what it feels like to be in love and feel comfortable. Great portrayal of these feelings. Definitely one of my favorite poems I’ve read in a really long time.

Oh Elle. That’s beautiful. You can be a real heart ripper. That’s beautiful too.
I hope I made somebody feel like that. That’s being a good … a real man.
