I hide behind neon LEDs and Strobe lights
Hoping that there’s enough fluorescence to shield me.
I escaped being crushed 
by a sea of arms that just don’t care.
Became an expert at slinking
through less than sober strangers.
I’ve forged a home in the rhythm of muffled bass
booming through bathroom walls.

I’ve found comfort in dancing 
where literally no one is watching. 
Swaying my hips with a smiling certainty 
That comfort and contentment
can be found away from a crowd
And enjoyed all the same.
