Put one hundred of my kind





on a field one summer night




watch us light it up like stars.




A tingling charge fills the air




a whole new




renewable energy source




eternal,free, dangerous,




we glow if you're watching closely.




It starts with the music.




It always starts with the music.




A pulse, the bass, the heartbeat




makes us stretch for something




we can't see, draw closer to




feel the heat in the crowd.




The scent of fire, and recklessness




We're all delicately balanced,




hovering on the balls of our feet,




ready




set




go.




When we dance, it's a high,




we can hear nothing




but the music




feel nothing




but the power and joy of living




see nothing




save each other




and the stars.




When the dawn opens the heavens




all we can do is smile,




drained and radiant.




Yeah, we're crazy,




we're geniuses but




the dumbest things this




side of the moon,




We're Earth's greatest resource




We will live forever.




We




are




young.

I can't say I completely understood it, though the title makes the meaning clearly.....nonetheless, it's a beautiful poem, I just wish the spacing wasn't so ...gappy? :P I'd give this a 4/5 (:
