we entered the empty hall.
we were a little too late.
the lights fell onto us.
we both froze over in a stalemate.
a sad love song played over
the wicked cupid used us as pawns
for i'd have never given you my hand
had i'd known you'd soon be gone
but you smiled at me so kindly
i had never seen a smile so bright
i smiled back politely
naive me thought the timing was just right.
our bodies pressed perfectly together
we both swayed to the beat of our hearts
our eyes kissed, our heels clicked.
heaven knew we played our parts
but the little lights began to dim,
and the love song, soon after, died.
we were two slow dancers
thus too slow, from time, to hide.
- goodbye my love.
