Ode to Dance

Thu, 11/19/2015 - 22:58 -- Dehausi


Breath like fire

Take me higher-

And through the room

Burn bright like lighters.


Dear old song, help me remember

Have your lyrics shine like embers.

For they say that rolling stones

Are tears we’ve shed with blood from bone.


It marks the way out of the dark

It leads me to the hearths of home.

My muscles ache; my skin perspires-

But applause will take away…

The pain I feel inside my heart,

This raging fire kept alight.
