Dancing on my own

Play with my strings by Summerhill Lane

Dancing on my own

love to dance, always have

mustang bore the sticker on the back bumper

Body moves with every tune

No matter fast or slow the beat

Husband one had no rhythm

Husband two had no moves

Husband three doesn’t exist

Just made that up to extend the list

Male number one kept me in his room

No music playing

No dance shoes shinning

No invitations to a gathering

With swaying bodies  

All smiles and laughter

The energy rising to the rafters

Grown boy two

He had the moves it was plain to see

But he didn’t share them much with me

Three Four Five

Together combine to tell you all

They could flip me that’s for sure

But none of it happen on the dance floor

Number Six

He is jiving

And that’s no lying

Can not stop his feet from sliding

On the side walk and in the park

Not one to feel embarrassed

By passing people not in on the sound

While he dances free round and round

I will join him in this fun

Dancing separately and as one.

    1. Darling Lia, please print this painting and hang it on your wall. It would make me so happy. There are no watermarks and it is a full scan so it should print up nicely.
      I love you little sister. ❤️❤️❤️❤️🎈🎈🎈🎈🧚🏻‍♀️🧚‍♂️🧚🏻‍♀️

  2. Exquisitely written. You are so talented in your art as well. Such a beautiful woman. If I were a man I would totally dance in the streets with you. I love to dance as well and am pretty shameless. Embarrassed, not I. Love you.
