A Single Dance

By Simple Man

Not meant to be you and I 
That is what I said
Your soul already promised
My soul already sold
My heart drenched in hatred
Dripping in lies and depravity
 Focused on my failures-I never saw my successes
Cold and unfeeling I became-years of damage took their toll
What right do I have losing myself in you?
Blinded-I never saw through your Façade of joy
I never saw how your soul became darker, the closer we drew
Yet we still took to the floor
To forget
To be one
If only for an instant
After only one dance with me I had given you my affliction
Now I am haunted by horrid apparitions
Of a love never meant to be

Even after all this time I haven't forgotten. I still miss you. I still want you. I am sorry for who I was, I was not ready, nor were you.
