Should I Be In This Place?

Poetic Asides November 2013 Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 23: an “I shouldn’t be here” poem

Should I Be In This Place

Should I
quietly hide
in the clouds to gaze upon
the stars dancing in moonlit skies
to songs only they know?

Should I
try to capture
the soft and graceful steps of
this waltz in evening’s ballroom,
my words will sound hollow.

I should,
instead, enjoy
the scene in silent awe as
those involved in this astral dance
ignore my intrusion.
