Dancing?

I was alone,

At least I was.

But now I have company,

Not that I needed it,

Not that I ever wanted it,

Now that I have it.

When I was alone

I craved the presence of others.

Now I crave solitude

More than friendship.

Much, much more.

I was happy alone,

Alone in my thoughts,

Singular in my desires.

But now I have a friend

I do not want.

A small and clumsy man,

Who treads on my toes,

Who cramps my very being,

Who only wants to do one thing.

His name? Dan Sing.
