Past/Present/You

he takes my hand

you took my hand
and pulls me towards him

and pulled me towards you
his palms are sweaty from dancing

your palms were sweaty from the summer’s

heat
and I tense as he puts an arm around me

and I relaxed as you put an arm around me
it’s hot on the dance floor

it was hot in the park
strobe lights streaming around us

sunlight streaming around us
a disco ball casts sun-on-water rainbows

the sun on the water cast disco ball rainbows
he shouts something to me

you murmured something to me
but I can’t hear over the music’s pounding baseline

but I couldn’t hear over my heart’s pounding beats
and as he bends down to kiss me

and as I leaned up to kiss you
all I can think is your name

all I could think was your name
