Teach What You Can’t Do

He asked me to dance, ma
But I’ve two left feet
We swayed in a trance, ma
I couldn’t count the beat
He wouldn’t take a no, ma
I was too shy to retreat
Now I’m caught in his spell, ma
My private hell, ma
Followed and fell, ma
So who can I tell, ma
I didn’t listen, but now
I can teach to lead

Dversepoets.com and Bjorn wants us to dance a poem. 1-2-3, A waltz.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Such dances can often end this way! I like the repetitions which really carry the dance along.

  2. Falling under someone’s spell can be tempting, but you have to know how to lead (and sometimes away)

    I do love the ending line. I really like the beat of your verses, specially with the ending, ma.
