to waltz or not to waltz

I trod too long a path once walked..
Yes, I have been the fool before
let me be the second to say it
And I have too,
been the jester
they seem to like the latter
but they fail to admit relishing the first
Yes, I shall admit my failing
and then ever so quick
the fall from grace
While you may watch my step
I tell you I watched yesterday instead
that I did not look at yonder
In the fading light
I voiced a concern
But nightfall came before
the dance could be completed
and the music
it beckons me ..
so I see him in the distance
his hand offered out
to dance the incomplete waltz
of incorrigible utopia

the flay

And as the day flays
the rest must stay intact
for we must live another day
to gain tomorrows reaping
wear the blinds to a party
of your choosing
and walk backwards into the storm
bring your umbrella to a close
as we bring your memory
my nail polish crackles
and the silver tarnishes
and i walk the path home
