dancin' in the rain

dancin' in the rain...
I'm just dancin' in my pain...
where there's nothing left to 
gain...
in my heart.

She would never really care
to express herself and share...
from her heart that you would 
dare...
to give all yours!

Would you think about a deal
from your heart that she would 
steal...
something sacred... that would 
peel you...
to the bone?

Expectation for exchange 
was not given to arrange...
not a barter here...
nor any proposition!

Yet what mattered for the most
was for her to tell the host!
Tell him anything...
but please...
just let him know!

Nothing happened in this way
she would answer for a day...
just to care enough and say...
"I am here"

"No not me, I'm not 'the one'
can't you see I'm on the run..."
as she leaves him for her fun
to be alone!

What's it all about this pain...
when there's nothing left to 
gain...
and you keep it...
dancin' in the rain?

Be the fool...you should have 
known...
let your heart become a 
stone... 
or she'll trample it alone...
are you scared?

Will you give another chance
let your heart begin to dance... 
will you dance it all again...
in the rain?

What's  the price that you will 
pay...
as you search throughout the 
day...
for an answer to your pain...
where there's no gain?

What you seek and what you 
find...
became the difference in her 
mind...
and she said...she would only
be your friend!

What is real there'll be no 
doubt...
let your heart become a spout!
Will you give and pour it out...
from your heart? 

She will take it 'on the run'...
and then trample it for fun...
she will trample... 
as you dance it...
in the rain!

Will you play this game in time
be her friend and get in line...
as you say one last good-buy...
to your heart?

When the only thing you'll lose
the most precious part she'll 
use...
or are you about to stray...
into the dark?

It's a race for her to find...
someone else will be more 
kind...
You're a Poet!
She has other plans in mind...

as she keeps you...
dancin' in the rain

dancin' in the rain
I'm just dancin' in my pain...
where there's nothing left to 
drain...
from my heart!

What's the lesson... will you 
see...
will you give your heart for 
free...?
Will you keep it...
dancin' in the rain?

or will you..... just...
D I S A P P E A R ..........!

    Congratulations on your win in my "Raindrops Falling" contest Robert. I had a very hard time judging this contest as most of the poems were so well written. Thank you for supporting my contest. Love, Carol
