That Night

Location

That night I felt beautiful

I was confident

It showed

 

I went alone

A couple friends and I

I was beaming

And giddy

And happy

 

Until my date left

Leaving me with you

You asked me to dance

I couldn't say no

With you enchanting me with that smile and pink tie

 

The camera I held

Dangled off my wrist

As you pulled me close to dance

The song I can't remember

But the smell of clean clothes will always be imprinted in my mind

 

Soon the song ended

We sat together

You taking my hand

And me not letting go

 

Your eyes drew me in

Your lips pressed against mine

Everything got hazy

Slowed down

The fireworks in my head

The spinning floor

The stampede in my heart

It was a mix of fast and slow

As the night came to a close
