Shake your body to the rhythm
A frantic beat invades your brain
It floats menacingly through a hot room.
Let the music take you away
numb your thoughts
as you meld with the massive energy front
Dance all night
If you move your feet fast enough, maybe you can forget who you are.
And then, you can touch that man without remorse.
Like a zombie
Crawl into bed with him, and in the morning, scurry home in a frenzy-
not able to process the guilt.
Your can't wait to dance again.
Let yourself free
Or rather, chain your heart to the ground, so it can remain unfeeling.
