Word Dancer

Which word is the right


Agony of sweat and blood

In comfy chair with arm


Why do I strive?

No one asked me to be a


All these years

Words on words

Running to mailbox

Ripping open envelope

Thanks, but not what we are

Looking for at the moment

All these years later

Hair white and moving


Word dancer keeps looking for

the perfect partner.
