Dance

The dancer in me yearns to run
To fly high and stretch my soul with Ailey
Or stomp low and strong
For intent and instinct to vibrate through my toes with Gregory Hines and Savion Glover
To wind and bend and stretch and moan
Groan as my body flows in ways that only the eye can understand
It is not about sound but flavor now
Vision blurred but clear with purpose
On pointé, pain for pretty
Lines and stamina and determination in every step
Past language to emotion
Past color to experience
Past proficiency to ability
To be able to rise to the occasion
To evolve, change and create
To break
To break free
To dance
