Momentary strangers.

A stranger’s danger.

The unexpected danger of my heart awaking. 

Your hand holds mine.


Words have past between us. 

A contagious flame is there, 

I have never seen this, never felt it. 

A nervous giggle makes her presence know.


My heart rushes, but holds true.

In your eyes I see the glimmer of something—

Your smile brings the flame brighter, as I mold to your embrace.

Your arms feel strong and gentle.


Here we are at the beginning, 1-2-3-4—

Music a memory.

My feet tremble to find the forgotten beat. 

I look to you, see you smile and find my place again.
