I had a moment once
Accepted an invite to skip out
Looked at life on the otherside
Thought about the absence of fear,
The indifference of pain.
No one came to beg me back to the sideline
Nothing warned of quieter seas
No reports of another existence
No grand re-entry, no cheering, no song
I had a moment once again
Watched you breathe slow, alone in your skin
Saw how you wanted to dance
And hoped you would come back to my singing.
I danced a furious circle.
