Dance With Me

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Through the darkness, through the lies:
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me,
Ignore their shouts, ignore their cries:
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Don’t tremble, hold your head high.
One two three, one two three
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
They can’t hurt you, don’t you cry,
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
It’s lonely dancing on your own.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
But I’ve been living all alone.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
I wish I had never come here.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
But I will not shed a tear
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Breathe in, breathe out
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
I can face those demons now
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Or I’ll dance alone again.
One two three, one two three,
Won’t you please dance with me?

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

Laraine Smith: In addition to being humorous, this story is visual! This is also a beautiful story. Keep up the great work! :)

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...
