Her feet walked familiar ground

Solid

Sometimes trudging

Crushing gravel

Salt in her wounds

Some days slipping

Risking falling

Through cracked ice sheets

Mirroring chilly depths

 

One day she decided to dance

A new beat

Strummed on her hand

Music they both heard

Killing her softly

Changing her two-step

Turning

Spinning

Kissing in Calypso rhythm

 

A blue night

Breathed its sweetest air

Through the flow of her dress

Parachuting their hearts

Holding hands

Whispering wows on the journey up

Smiling from inside out

Beaming

“I just wanna love you.”

Their feet never again touched

The ground.
