last night I danced

Last night I danced.
I danced in a way that made me fall in love,
with my body.
I danced with men I will never kiss, but people thought we were in love –
and perhaps we were, for that moment in time.

They held me
Guided me
Let me be strong
Admired me …

Supporting me a note longer,
letting my body fully extend …
before leading me into the next corner of music.

I stretched and dipped,
fell back, dropped low,
rose again.
I spun out, then returned.

My body active and engaged,
every line longer and every space aware.

Over those hours on the dance floor,
I felt more alive than I have in years.

I am on a high I’d forgotten I could own.
I had the best first date ever and need more of me.
