I Dance Only for You but the Mirror Looks On

I dance only for you, but the mirror looks on.

Matching me turn for turn, 

Dipping 
   and swirling 
      and undulating. 

The rapt attention of a comfortable 
old friend 
bearing silent witness to a burst of passion. 
But you are nowhere to be found. 

I shake 
and shimmy 
and shudder. 

I rock 
and reel 

and wreck. 


I dance alone. 
The mirror looks on.
