organized

Gets overwhelmed at times
trying to keep the world organized
in neat rows with clean surfaces
and is wondering if
keeping her corner sane
could be enough.

apologize

Your voice is raw
and I want to apologize
because I know this all hurts
so much.
But all I can do
is rock you in my arms.

unchecked

Tambourines reverberate
in a near celestial lilt
prompting heels
and mouths to lift
unchecked.

stomping

Stomping out a steady beat
in indistinct circles
surrounded by those who
light my fire.
The night knows no end.

bursting

Coming up for breath,
my head breaks the surface
lungs bursting for fresh air
and I dive again.

songs

Bowed over, you pluck strings
delicately as flowers
endlessly
bringing sunlit songs
to my heart.

Toes

Toes dance across the floor
half run, half bounce, all heart.
