It takes two

It takes two to tango

only one to break a heart live a lie

unawares trapped in a one way street

circling circling back to the same spot

maze of conflicting emotions

love hate anger despair

pale shadow of my former self

refusing to look into mirrors

risking a glimpse of the truth

opening pandora’s box

no way back

it takes two to tango

but i was always dancing solo

to your tune

now back on the dance floor

no strings attached




About cho wan yau

Teacher by day poet/writer by night. Words have been my first love and will be my last. As a child I locked myself into the toilet devouring books which transported me to distant lands. Poetry shared penned from 2009-2010 in a titanic struggle to stay sane at Heartbreak Hotel. Please check it out on Any comments or feedback welcome. Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?

  1. Good lord. I swear a lot of your most recent posts I’d swear were being posted for me, Mama G.
    I feel all of this. Or at least I once did.

  2. Does that mean you are on the road to recovery Jade? Recent posts just about universal human experience that’s why they resonate.
