Dance

The Gods set me on fire and told me to dance.
“Dance” they said –
And when I dance
I am perfect balance,
I am free.
There is music in me –
And when I dance,
I am emotion in motion:
Spinning…
Spiralling…
infinitely into eternity.
And I can see the music
Travelling though time
And speaking through my body.
When I dance,
I am the bridge between
The world we know and the world we don’t know.
When I dance I dance my story, I dance my pain.
When I dance, my body opens
And all the madness comes screaming out:
Dance with me.
