Tricia Dance poem

Dance with Me is from my collection of poetry using the theme of Lost Identity.

We met at the clock tower
Saturday nights.

Soft lights shone,
we glided, zigzagged,
slow slow, quick quick, slow
to Syd Dean’s big band.

We jived, hopped,
I twirled
over your shoulders,
through your legs.

The night you popped the question,
we sealed our pledge
with a tinge of lychee
in Martini with cake.

But now no more dance of love
or promenades

just the slow, slow beat
of a robotic heart.
