Intense flow and beat
resonating through my feet
makes me want to dance;

intertwined in the
depths of my deepest being
but withheald for fear.

slide and scrape, the sound
of my feet tapping. why can't
they cooperate?

The author's comments:
sometimes people are just too shy to express themselves, too nervous to do what they really want to do. it can't stop them from dreaming though.

I couldn't agree more, Elizabeth. It's hard to be shy and feel like no one knows what's going om in my head. Firefly has captured it!
