If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

The Last Dance

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
she slipped on 
her white 
nightgown
as she 
prepared 
for bed
but the music 
playing 
outside her 
room
beckoned her
to heed 
its call
listen she did, 
and more...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

she stepped
into 
her red 
stiletto heels
and started 
 swaying
with her eyes 
shut closed
she finally 
let go
unaware 
of the eyes 
that were 
watching...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

he knew 
she was 
still mad 
at him
but the 
lovely sight 
was too much 
to resist
 he took 
his chance
and took her
in his arms
their eyes locked
his gaze 
drowned 
 her anger
there was 
nothing left 
but 
burning
passion...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
and so, 
together 
they slowly 
swayed
to their hearts' 
content
as if 
in a 
trance
they danced 
like
there 
was 
no
tomorrow...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
unbeknownst
to them
their 
time
was 
running
out
and 
tomorrow
would 
never 
come... 

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

Oh, what a romantic you are.

Well done. Romance is always better when the lovers are starcrossed ... somehow! Poignant.

Ouch. Through the whole thing I was thinking how beautiful it was... how I wished all couples fights could end that way... and then BAM. As sad as it is, it is a beautiful picture of a final moment and reminder why we should not go to bed angry. Thanks for sharing.

EXCELLENT :D

Bing, WOW! The refrain (very much like a jazz tune, that), the dreamy quality of the images, her stiletto heels... a sort of Neruda sexiness to this, but I never expected the ending. You're right - live each moment to the fullest! Amy

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
