The day I forgot how to dance

The beat came

Then went

While my feet

Cement

Like my heart 

Too heavy to be lifted

Every song had

No rhyme or melody 

And my soul

Tasted gray

The day

I forgot

How

To dance
This is offered for day 2 of Poetic Asides at Writer’s Digest, the prompt to write a “Not Today” poem.  I actually wrote this after my dad passed away over a year ago.
