Hustle

Spinning in a controlled circle
Head spotting
Led by the best
No regretting
A sudden switch
Swinging and swaying
To the rhythm of “Canned Heat”
It’s not a break-beat anymore
Thinking about the next move
Fanning out
These two minutes are the ones that count
All eyes are on us

A remarkable image
Frozen in time
Thank God for a camera
Mid-rock, extended arms
Smiles plastered on our faces
Adrenaline pumping, heart racing
Waiting for this to be over
Pushing through

Jumping as high as I can
In a pair of silver heels
Landing as gracefully as possible
On one of the few people I could trust
Thrown in the air
Like a childhood toy
Hoping to catch myself
The song is coming to an end
A dip, down low
Popping back up,
Like nothing was wrong
Happy that we made it
Mistakes are forgotten
No one would even know
Walking off the dance floor
Arms linked;
Only a physical connection
My mind somewhere else.

i like it a lot, reminds me of my own style of writing. i'd consider not capitalizing the first letter of every line, it makes it so you can emphasize some lines more. that's nothing that needs to be changed though. if you have comments for any of my work, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, but I just capitalized the letters since I wasn't putting periods at the ends of each line. The teacher said it'd flow more, but I see what you're saying. I'll try it next time!
