Why Tonight

The night sky overhead
The chill to the air
I move:

To feel something
To punish myself

I feel the loneliness
I embrace it
Make friends with it
Because I fear it is all that I will ever have

To cry through movement
To scream with the staccato
To forgive myself with the curves

Fearing that my own touch will be all that I have to comfort me

So I let the night air embrace me
And the music audibly exclaim my emotions
While I hold them all in
For fear that if I let it out

That it would be etched in stone.
