As painfully as it will be, sometimes letting go is the only way to move forward.

Music of love drifted softly around the floor,

They danced so emotionally.


The love in their eyes shown so brightly in the dim room,

Oh how breathtaking the scene was.


Sneaking sweet kisses and caresses when they could,

Nothing mattered in the moment for them as they danced.


The love in his eyes for her was powerful and possessive,

Yet gentle and protective.


The love in her eyes for him was sweet and loving,

Yet raging of pure desire and adoration.


They were the perfect pair of burning love and pure affection,

Two halves of the same whole bounded by soul.


The world could have stopped for those minutes they danced together,

Neither one noticing.


Family and friends gathered around to watch,

Yet they could not bother,

Too enthralled with one another to take notice.


And it was in those few minutes I realized,

That young love will never be true love.


They danced on without a care in the world,

Neither one noticing as I silently pick up the broken pieces left.


Bidding them a silent farewell as I quietly slip out,

Unrequited yearning tailing after my shadow,

Tears of sorrow kissing my cheeks as the door closes behind me,

Signaling the end of the chapter for the love I held for them.
