dance of mistrust

with wide eyed fear

she dances joy

laughing as she cries

mourning as she sings

chaotic circles

spinning vigilance

for she knows

that somewhere on the dancefloor

there is pain

it’s whip cracks at her feet

as she lifts them to love’s song

and she knows

it will soon find her back

and break her open

once again
