dance

Bringing me down (an audition)

That adrenaline coursing through my veins

erases my feelings, my memories, my pains

and all I have in the moment in me

is to be the best that I can be.

I walk into the silence as vast as the sky

despite the fear my head held high

my fists clench in the anxiety that makes me shiver

although I try to move with the fluidity of a river.

That deliberate expression on my face

feels painted upon, increasing my pace

deep within my heart beats loud

and for me, the silence is the crowd.

I turn, I leap, I move so fast

the future blends into the past

and all I know in that moment

is I never knew where the fear went.
