A pit where our thoughts can go and die away because right now in this rhythm we don't need to think. I want to forget this body, this exterior I'm in and sway in the air. I want to dream out aloud, and let this heavy beating breathing rock music take over me. It pushes through the floor into me, coiling around my heart. The drums take over the heartbeat. I'm swishing away the vulnerability and anxiety and stage fright and fear and my litany of pessimistic thoughts.
Head banging, laughing at ourselves and how even though we fight so much, over this energy we forget everything and gel like drops of ink in a bucket of water.
A sun of words and love and tempo breathes an inferno through me. I want to be in this rhythm of connection forever.
It is this feeling of being alive that makes all the pain in life endurable.
