Lets Dance

November 22, 2008
By Rhiannan Carlson, Meriden, CT

The speaker's thumping
The people sweating
The energy is electric

I want to be in the middle
Dance closer
I want to move closer to the beat

The music pulls like a glowing thread
It fills us like hot acid
I want to feel its heat

People reach extacy on the dance floor
Everyone's keeping perfect time
Out here I'm ready for anything

I just want to dance
Till there is nothing left
Lets dance

Life is great sometimes and I want to enjoy it. I dont want to be a wall flower. I want to be in the middle of all the action!

I really like it. The wording is great. It is refreshing from all the depressing poems out there. Keep up the good work.
