    In My Dreams

    In my dream you are holding me closely and guiding me around the dance floor. The music is soft and your hand is warm on mine, our hearts beat together as one. We float gracefully never missing a step looking into each other's eyes. We are there alone dancing through the night...

    I'm a Loser...

    The couple pity slowdances that my friends gave me... It never ended well for them. Usually I would step on their feet or run into someone else or something. I wish I could slowdance right. I couldn't blame anyone for not wanting to dance with me, lol.

    That's My Dress!

    I went to junior prom last year with a friend of mine.  I was a sophomore and he was a junior, he didn't have anyone to go with, so i went kind of out of pity, kind of out of curiosity, never having been to a prom.  I'm not a very musically inclined person nor am i very...
