Live like i'm dancing.

I dance
As I awake
Floating and cascading
Through a sheltered veil
Of innocence
I dance
As I experience contentment
Sashaying between the
Rays of sunshine
That flood a floor of
Sunflower petals
I dance
As wisdom ignites
Leaping in its abstract wonders
Drowning myself
In its infinite delights
I dance
As pain grips me
Throwing my tortured corpse
Against barbed wire
I dance
As I lift a prayer
Spreading my arms
In broken rhythm to
A god I fear I’ve lost
I dance
As anger invades my eyes
Thrashing and fighting
Underneath a towering boiled
I dance as I fall
Laying gracefully, silently
Upon shattered glass
Yet I dance
As I am freed
Letting my body become an
To all who will listen
And watch my performance
Again and again

The author's comments:
i am crazy about dancing and have always looked to it for inspiration. i am never happier than when i'm dancing, yet i benefit from the unique quality that allows you to channel any feeling into it. i dance when i'm excited, disappointed, angry, or confused. this poem was inspired by the amazing moments i experience when i'm dancing, and how my life shows through them.
