Ashley Wilkes is the supposed love of Scarlett O'Harra's' life in Gone with the wind.(Which I'm slightly obsessed with because... let's just say I'm kind of in her position lately.) And the dance: the virginia reel is a metaphore for... Dare I say it? Sex. (scandalous! lol)
Makes my life sound like a soap opera, but it's really not THAT bad! As for the title it was either the opening line or "This Scarlett"...Whatever.


If Ashley Wilkes asked me to dance

If Ashley Wilkes asked me to dance,
I would have to say no.
Since you're here beside me in a stance.
No virginia reel for this modern, northern doll.

No, this Scarlet holds on to nothing.
Nothing but a dream
of what could maybe/eventually be
A waltz in the sky
A time for Ashley Wilkes and I.

But this Scarlett
always wants most
what this Scarlett cannot have.
And when Ashley says he loves me...

I might want Rhett back.

  This is clever. I myself hate Gone With the Wind because it is sooo long, but I think this puts a more unique(and quite a bit shorter) spin on things. I like how you used metaphors instead of coming out and saying everything. I hate poems like that. I like some mystery. Good job.
