Dance of My Life

Music so loud I don't need the lyrics, only the bass
The words of this story are written across your face
The tears I cried, the blood you lost mark the notes across the lines of our scars
Feel the rhythm in every move we make
A dance of a million lies, we know the steps by heart
1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and...
So strong the walls sway with us
One wrong step and suddenly there you are, touching me, sharing the sound of my heart
Spin so fast
Mix the world together into one
Round and round I go
See the colors swirl so bright
The pain in my feet
I can't keep moving
I can't take this loss we share
Screams so loud it shatters all around us

"A dance of a million lies, we know the steps by heart" Fantastic. I love how even though this may or may not be the point of the poem, it gets across the separateness that humans will always have with each other. Very well done.
