Gnome

I’m dancing a dance,
Absolutely tame,
No viable chance,
Always the same.
It's a shame,
It’s not exceptional!

(dark stumblings
lurch
knee aches
swearword
cant
crawl
home)

I’m dancing a dance
I taught myself.
Knew better:
Born that way
And hated it.

Either way
To hate what’s new
About you
Is natural.

Too sensitive.

Sorry for another dark theme! I broke my knee a couple of years ago. I enjoyed the inverted meter of this piece.

I enjoyed it, thanks Russell.
Sorry about your knee.

Glad it spoke to you. No worry about the knee, that was a long time ago! Copied Valentine card on my computer. Some pain and pleasure is real; much of the rest we just make up. I'll read this often!

Sigh.
Once again, you have managed to make me sigh one of those heavy sighs. The sighs that come after a zen moment. Realization. Closure. Discovery.

Thank you. ;-)

Anais, may this path of sighs be a source of joy to you. That would attempt to balance the equation as your posts are a source of joy and inspiration to me!
