Poem: Moonlight Dance

Here is another poem from my character Mitch’s point of view called Moonlight Dance inspired by Ben E. King’s classic Stand By Me. Hope you all like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

We walked from the bar,

the moonlight shone down on us,

I felt safe even at this late hour

when you were with me,

I hoped you felt protected with me too,

I took your hand in mine

and asked you to dance,

you looked at me like I had lost it

and laughed,

you looked around to see if anyone was around,

never wanting to look foolish or out there

but there was a fun side you hid from outsiders,

‘The coast is clear Nate darling’, I laughed,

you smiled and allowed me to take you into hold,

‘I can’t dance Mitch’, you said while standing on my foot,

I ignored the pain with an inner wince,

‘I know, I seen you attempt Saturday Night Fever

while doing the breakfast in your underwear, it was interesting.’,

‘I only do that occasionally’, you lied and I held in a grin.

‘I put this leg forward and the other leg back,

you do it the opposite way Nate.’

You were confused so I moved your legs into position

and began to lead you around the path,

I felt like the luckiest man in the world as we danced,

the way you looked at me was like I was special,

that you liked being in my company,

that you seen a life with me,

I never thought anyone could look at me like that,

I thought all this love stuff was for other people

but you were making me believe otherwise

and I liked it,

didn’t say it of course,

too deep for a night out of the town

but I was seeing us standing by each other,

looking out for each other,

having that kind of love I always dreamed of

and there was no one I wanted it more with,

you were worth the wait

and even as you stepped on my foot for the third time

I wanted you forever two left feet and all.
