It was a dance

He took strong, purposeful steps

She shrank away with little backwards steps

She advanced in quick, cruel paces

He took hasty steps backwards

Their music were their memories…

Crickets chirping…

Birds singing…

Kimonos rustling…

The gentle sobs she made cradled in his arms…

The scent of their flower…

The soft hurt in his eyes…

The hard look of betrayal…

Love…

Pain…

Sorrow…

Guilt…

Anger…

That was their dance

Around and around they danced

Never quite meeting…

But never too far away

No matter what it was made of…

It was theirs…

Their dance of love
