A Midnight Dance

Clothed in only the skin I was born with,

My soul soars freely in the light of the moon.

I leave behind the darkness of my earthly trials,

Knowing I will return to them all too soon.

I leave behind the bondage of possibility,

Allow myself to wallow in my own desire.

I clear my mind of other people's perceptions,

Fanning my freedom like the flames of a fire.

I search for harmony, for peaceful co-existance,

For insight and understanding of the fruit I bore.

Naked only in the corners of my heart and mind,

Free from the chains of vunerability that I once wore.

No longer do I wear my heart upon my sleeve for display,

Nor do I wait for others to confirm what I should feel.

Letting my soul wander freely in the light of the moon,

Exploring all the many emotions that are so real.
