Dancing Alone

I hold out my hand
and ask you to dance
you shudder
and push me away

Am I that vile
that you should reject
this chance
at sweet intimacy?

Our life is a dance
the kind I can't follow
I've forgotten the steps
as music slowly fades

Just want you to hold me
to want to be near me
to keep me
in time and sway

It's not your thing
this much I know
but it's mine 
you reject again

I'll dance this one
