The Dance

What to do when you are coming down from cloud nine
When things aren't as shiny and glossy as before
As you start to question what it is you thought you saw

What do you say when the niceness has worn off
When the things you used to cherish are no more
As you wonder if you made it all up in your head

What exactly do you do when the spark is gone
When you know you can no longer stand it
As you start to feel disdain and regret

What pray tell do you do when the music is over
When it seems like a joke to go on
As you pretend things are better than they really were

What, I am asking you, do you do
When it comes down to you and your heart
As your brain does its part, finally showing up to the dance

You bow and say.... good night.
