A Poem by moderndaypeterpan

Sometimes a random feeling comes over me.

It is the strongest feeling a person could ever possibly fathom.

I don’t know what it is. 

Sometimes I think it’s love, but sometimes it’s so powerful that it makes me sad.

Although it makes me sad, this feeling is great.

I usually get it when I’m listening to the music that moves me most.

My heart swells 800 times larger and all I want to do is dance around the room.

Not necessarily a happy dance but a powerful dance.

I do this sometimes.

God is my only witness.

One day I want someone to see me do this dance.

I want them to free themselves of judgment as they watch.

And then I will collapse into their arms.

After witnessing this, I am most certain they will understand me.

Because as of now, no one does.

I know one day I will show someone this.

I may or may not dance, but maybe this thought is enough.

Whoever I show this to,

They will be special.

And hopefully they will understand me afterwards.

Then I won’t have to die with myself as my only friend.

I love life and I love who I am.

I love to dance.

Author's Note

It's not too charismatic or anything, but it expresses what I needed it to.

I understand this need to dance.. mine is primal, just a complete letting loose of everything and anything remotely human.. I've only danced it in private, never sharing it with anyone because, like you, I doubt many would understand.

This is a great poem of letting go.. I enjoyed it immensely.

What a powerfully honest write, expressing the depth of you as you voice your freedoms and joy. Those moments when emotions wash over us can bring about the most beautiful understanding of who we are..

Boy, this was powerful. I liked it very much...more so being that you are "just a kid". Speaks volumes to who you may be as an adult. :o)

I'm just a kid. Sometimes I randomly feel like writing. I write very rarely, but when I do, it is always incredibly meaningful to me. more..
