The ceiling stares back at me
Sprawled on the cold hard floor,
In the darkness I watch the lights
From passing cars, creep across the room.
I’m lost in another world, far away
The music picks me up, lifts me and carries me away
Dances play in the movies of my mind.
I listen wholly, with all of me
Shutting out the rest of the world
Just to be with the music
Let it sink into every pore.
I want it to take hold.
It’s like a drug, alters my emotions
Takes me high, brings me low.
Makes me move, dance and shake
Induces tears I’m unable to stop.
I lay pressed against the floor
To feel the vibrations
Make it even more real,
As I relax, I feel each muscle give way
Release into the music,
It calms me and sets me free
I won’t be still for long
The music always moves me
And then I’m who I was always meant to be.
