I Can No Longer Hear

stressed man with man outside

I Can No Longer Hear

Regina Puckett


We do a slow dance

As if in a cloudy trance

You ask too much

As our fingers touch

Your look says it all

It’s a silent call

I can no longer hear

Because tears fill my ears

Let me dance away

While you stay

I’ll close my eyes

So I can’t hear your cries

My heart died long ago

These steps are all for show

Our music – heartbeats

Wondering why life cheats

So spin, spin away from me

A dance should be two – not three
