the dance

she dances
like a freed up sweet silhouette
spared coffee mugs
on the counter

the new apartment
his final hour
days of extinction
new love
the double-looped wall of death
tough circles under disillusioned eyes
the weighted sofa
the forwarded sidewalks
all gone

she dances
like a freed up sweet silhouette
spared coffee mugs
on the counter

    Hmmm…. I like the feeling of freedom within these words. 🙂

  6. I am always intrigued by your writing Mary Ann, perceptions and observations we can all relate to. So many emotions are tied to the human experience.

      I’m married to writing my screenplay now and it brings me much happiness. Dancing with both feet on the ground and when I leap, the ground comes with me. Thanks for your inspiring words and kindness.

  8. Gorgeous feeling of movement and life!
