"You Dream"

I thought leaving you behind was possible
insanity gross big ego of me
better than you? No this mind is but a peer through
mucky water turbulent illusion i jerkily dancing
in a dream world with a you dream fearing
if i stop !        you will be offended

She could just be dancing in the kitchen,
Wearing your t-shirt like a dress.
Treasure her like she cost a million,
As you whisper,”so beautiful,”under your breath.
She's dancing on your feet,
With our song on repeat.
She painted every role of us.
She's taking off her clothes,
In the bed you kept me warm.
Heard she's everything I never was.
She has the perfect lights in her eyes,
A hidden smile you can't deny.
There's no better lover.
She's a tale of greatness.
She's the endless youth.
She's everything I never could've been.

Been over seven years
since I've been in the club
What in my mind made me want to come
I wasn't sure that I was still young enough
Even though my mentality,
is probably younger than most the people here
Got grey hairs in my beard
Though I'm only twenty-nine
Kind of let myself go body wise
Haven't even had that much experience in this life
And now I'm entering the prime
Everywhere I look, girls, be dancing
Boys on the prowl looking for lustful romancing
And I'm standing here
Think I'm losing control
Of my mind, body and soul

I'm moving to the music
Feel the sway
Never to old
to feel the music flowing
through these bones
Never to old
To feel my heart beating to the rhythm
All these feelings I've been given
Out on display
Through movements see what the lyrics say

Let the beat come alive
As your body moves in time
Under these flashing lights
And now that these tunes
Have taken me over
I've lost all senses to even care
Just need a night to let my hair down
Not a care in the world now

As I'm lost in the groove
That's when I noticed her
As I look towards your blue-eyed gaze
A feeling lights me up
From a smile that you gave
When I looked your way
Sticking too the moment
as I'm swept across the floor
Through these movements that I make
As melodies remedy everything in me
She glides across the room
Just to tell me what she had to say
And the words that fell from her lips
"Would you like to dance with me?"

I'm moving to the music
Feel the sway
Never to old
to feel the music flowing
through these bones
Never to old
To feel my heart beating to the rhythm
All these feelings I've been given
Out on display
Through movements see what the lyrics say

Let the beat come alive
As your body moves in time
Under these flashing lights
And now that these tunes
Have taken me over
I've lost all senses to even care
Just need a night to let my hair down
Not a care in the world now

The DJ was bringing down the room
With all those dance anthems qued
And as I pulled you closed to my chest
A change of pace
In the playlist, the DJ played
A song that filled the club
As sweet vocals softly and slowly build
To a climactic chill
that runs down your spine
I feel her heartbeat next to mine
The goosebump on my skin
Make my hairs stand like soldiers
So much room to breathe
I feel free
I feel free

I'm moving to the music
Feel the sway
Never to old
to feel the music flowing
through these bones
Never to old
To feel my heart beating to the rhythm
All these feelings I've been given
Out on display
Through movements see what the lyrics say

Let the beat come alive
As your body moves in time
Under these flashing lights
And now that these tunes
Have taken me over
I've lost all senses to even care
Just need a night to let my hair down
Not a care in the world now

Dancing
To the rhythm that plays inside my mind
Enhancing
When the things around me begin to unwind
Listening To the beat
Trying to make each step, every word, and my thoughts match it
Hoping
I don’t mess up and trip
Wishing
To be able to slow down and catch my breath
Asking
Why is it going faster and faster
I’m feeling my feet stumble across this stage
Frightened
I won’t be able to pick myself up again

The night was long.
the air was cool
i had my earbuds in and i drift away
i start to sway with the breeze
the music just takes me away
My movements swift
as i move to the song whispering in my ears
It pulses and moves
Alive, the beat of the song its heart
The rhythm its movements twisting and turning
My body transported i am part of this creature
It move with my dance steps the tempo increasing
I am wild as a tiger
I am as docile as a mouse
I am elegant as a princess
I have grown a pair of wings
I sigh as the song starts to fade
Its beautiful song ends bringing me back to
reality.

Have you ever danced in the street?
Barefoot, in the moonlight,
And as you dance,
The stars are your spotlight.
The ground is cold and hard to touch,
But tonight is your last night.
So don't look back... or down
They are there, all around you.
Learn to trust in what cannot be seen
And you will see the imperceivable.
Blackly staring into at the unknown,
beings of past generations welcome,
Those who's Era is over.
for those important to us who have passed on

August was a sincere month. I said I love you and I meant it. I said I love you in so many ways; tritely and like people do everyday with whimsy and passion and joy. I wrote our names in the sand, I kissed you brashly in restaurants, crowded streets, in the relief of the rain one day in that hot glimmering month. I breathed your name under sheets and I let you watch me as I danced to music while I cooked in a kitchen that was a little too small for us both to be in at the same time. I let you think I didn't know you were watching; laughing so quietly, loving so loudly from the doorway. Put another record on! I called over the song, fading to an end. We didn't have a record player but it would have been nice; to have had everything in the room with us. The music, the crackle, those voices, the garlic frying, the wine, you + I, the increasingly familiar voices over the T.V. next door. The moon waiting outside.

It's about 7pm and it's dark. A boot heel on the stoop. She is the coat that I wrap around myself in November, the wind that reddens and weathers my face.  

And that sound, that sound is the second, that sound is the beat, that sound is the sea, keeping time. When I was a child I was told that if you hold a big seashell to your ear, the sound you hear is the sea. What do I sound like to you I wonder in the early hours of the morning, as I turn on my side to see your sleeping mouth.

Nod your head mister to the bad-boy bass
dominating your headphones
Shake those hips girly as if you were Helen Keller
Speak through rhythms
I understand you fully
This is the language of funk

It's perfectly acceptable to boogie with
that white-washed wall over there
Feet are an acceptable dance partner darling
Arch that back
Touch those toes
Dance with your feet
Don't be afraid of who you are.

if i closed
you—

if the air fell
backwards, darkly—

if yours
brooked with golden
sunrise

softened (i love

when you
    dance.

Demons come out to play every night
Dancing around my brain til first light
Delighting in my darkest dreams, laughing because I am alone
Insomnia is the closest thing to Hell I have ever known
I used to hate sleepless nights, but they are much easier now that i dont have to spend them alone
