Euphoria rushes through my body
Tossing my hands into the air, I shout,
"I'm free! I'm free!"
Leaping through the air as if my legs were feathers,
I feel an elephantine weight risen and thrown from my chest.
But in my celebration, a certain thought halts my joy.
You are still anchored to the ground;
Bound by a heartbreak you feel,
But that I am immune to.
And so I rest my dancing body.
I instead float down to lay beside you,
Helping you to bear the pain.
Because this sorrow is too immense to carry on your own.
