To Dance.

I want to dance with determination
To move as if moving were salvation.

I want to breath deeply and close my eyes
Surrender to music ‘til ev’rything dies

My lungs will fill with blood; my heart with air.
My mind will empty, but I will not care.

I’ll dance as if calories were poison,
Like movement is the only way joy’s won,
Like my rhythm sets the tides of the sea
And when I spin the whole wide world spins with me.

Because if I stop, the stars will darken.
The moon will fall and the demons harken,
to us all, drawn in by my stillness here,
To haunt us with death, and motionless fear.
