Dancing in the Shadows

How do I translate
These feelings
Into simple words?
How do I transfer
This music
To the bottom of your soul?

The rhythm remains
Broken and jagged
This love lies
Unsure and scattered.

The door remains half-open.
The vow of silence is only half-broken.
If they look close enough they’ll see Us.

These are the moments I replay over and over.
These are the scenes I always long for:

Singing in the dark, dancing in the shadows.
