Rhythm in Sleep

©Stacie Sandall

Looking at me
from across the room,
our eyes dance
to the steady beat.

Our deejay hearts
play the same song
and begin to sway
in the crowded heat.

The knowing glimmer
in your eyes
reflects my feelings
back at me.

the vicious passion
in your smirk
speaks the rhythm
that will never be.

As the pulsing decibels
fade to gray,
I turn my head
and close my eyes.

If I concentrate
and cease to breathe
I can can finish dreaming
before my heart dies.
