The Dance

The house is quiet
She is all alone
The lights are dim
the music is down low

Here in her solitude
There is nobody to care
She’s a world away from
Their whispers and stares

She reaches into her heart
And she sets herself free
Becoming one with the music
Flowing into its sea

She breathes in its beauty
As it seeps into her soul –
Feeling its magic
With each sway & each flow

For one fleeting moment
It’s only her and the dance
A joining between music and self
in this moment of solitary romance
