Exert: 
Like a fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other


They were the youngest people in the room
And they were having the most fun
Though they were but teens
They held themselves with the grace of royalty
And they understood the music,
The movement,
The steps.
They spoke the language we never could truly understand


It was obvious they had danced before
They were in tune like a fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other.


She was a real live Cinderella,
He her Prince Charming
She smiled at him as if the whole universe 
Revolved around him
Her eyes were always lost in his
And unlike so many young people,
They truly looked at each other,
Eye to eye.


Like a fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other


He was harder to read,
But when she was dancing with someone else 
A look of longing would flicker across his eyes
Immediately followed by one of pain
Followed by a soft sigh


Like a fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other


There must have been something keeping them apart
some fear
when the other was not looking 
Their expressions were the same
Those moments of truth
They were brief
But spoke louder than words


They were a living, breathing fairy tale
Spinning together through our waltzing class
Every step
Every breath
As one


In his arms she was gorgeous
Her smile intoxicating
Laughter invigorating
Her eyes glowed with love
But with a hint of pain
As if to say this was there final dance
The last time they would ever be together


A living, breathing fairy tale
Spinning together
Every step
Every breath
As one


He was a perfect gentleman
His hidden emotions 
Barley bubbling to the surface
when she could not see
Jealously, no one else should dare to hold her
Restraint, he wanted to say something
But couldn't
Longing, she is everything he's ever wanted
But cannot have


A living, breathing fairy tale
Spinning together
Every step
Every breath 
As one


There was something between them
But what?
The mystery will remain to haunt us
For, before the stroke of midnight,
They disappeared
Like will- of-the- wisps into the starlight
But always I'll remember


Their fairy tale dance
Every step,
Every tilt of the head
Together,
Entirely focused on each other
A living, breathing fairy tale
Spinning together
Every step
Every breath
As one
