In your face I’m dancing
In your eyes I dance
The tension before, the nervousness that seem to be endless
Behind the curtains, so near but yet hidden
Safe! But not for long
I’d rather not
What if I mess up?
What I have to live up to is only the pressure I put on myself
For what do they care?
There are others!
But not for me, no,
this is me.
Collecting. Collecting of mind.
It’s only a face I put on.
But I think they know, they’ve seen it before.
They heard of it
Yet the same feeling
Tranquillity, yet tormention
I spin in the air
The air soft against my skin!
And how it moves gently
Hair runs wild
How fun! I want to laugh!
Freedom is what it is
For what does it matter now? What does anything matter?
It is here and now
Is it here and now I am happy
A shy smile; I throw myself out there
A look in another direction, flash right back, instant effect; A sudden flow of adrenaline
A calm, consistent face; Flow, I can allow myself to trust the memory of arms
A blush; Turbulence, here is focus, without focus I shall slip
Smiling eyes; Complete joy. The final jump. No, they are many.
I hit the ground, the lights go out. You are gone. The dance is over; you walk away.
