Hello and happy National Poetry Month! Oh heck, who are we kidding?! It’s always poetry time in Parfait land. And here you wondered… Hehe. Today it’s also music time here, and we better get dancing – after all, why wait for the fun to begin? My newest poem is called “Take Me There.” Let’s take a ride together into the town of poems and love; I’ll go first.
Take Me There
Take me to the dance floor and
Swing me around you with caring arms,
Feel my hair touch your shoulder and
My love reach through your plaid shirt.
Pair me with the memories of who I once was, and
Tell me I am a better version of
The woman you’ve seen in photos.
Let’s dust off my shoes and
Take them for a round of steps and turns,
With your arm at my waist and
Knowledge that my wait is finally at its end.
