As My Pen Danced

I waited, dressed to kill
in red,
and in love

both, of which 
I could have been coaxed out of

You have turned a pale shade of white,
my Valentine

Al Green sang to me,
as my pen danced as your substitute 
we danced all night long,
stationary, our dance floor.

As we whirled to the emotions
of words' sounds; hand in hand,
we went round and round
and round

No one else in the room
most of all, not you
as my ink turned 
from red to blue

Thanks to all for the comments. I am a bit confused because my poem was just featured in May, 2010 and now, after being entered in the finals for the International contest it is featured again, along with the winning poems - Did my poem place in the contest at all? Why would mine be featured with all the winning poems if mine did not win? Maybe a member here who is more familiar with how things work could explain.. thanks. Regina
