Dancing like nobody was watching–a poem

She was dancing like nobody was watching,

moving to a song nobody else heard.

She was lost without thought in a moment

speaking a language much higher than words.


She was one with it all; it was in her,

filling her full and stretching her seams.

She was the owner of now in her spirit,

and infinity was where she lived in her dreams.


She had said “no” to the structures of power

choosing to not care about what they said that she must

now there’s no end to the blissfully spent hours

and despite our preoccupation with her,

she pays none of her mind to us.


And she dances and she vibes and she flails

lost in a realm you could only hope to know

with its abandon and the freedom it entails

and all those delirious places to go.

    1. Cool. It has been in the works for a while, and I needed something tonight, so I made myself put enough more together to call it done. It’s really a cheat, but it doesn’t try to hide that fact, and since it works it gets a pass. Kind of like “You Give Love a Bad Name”; you write a cutesy pop rock tune and you get panned, but if you write a really good pop rock song, you get a pass. No comparison of course, just a parallel. Love ya.
