no dancing

i dance for joy

i twirl and sway

and lift my feet in song

and you gaze upon me

with love and adoration

and long to touch

the joy

to dance with it

for just one moment

to feel it move you

 

but it seems i cannot move

with your arms around me

and though i long to share the music with you

it seems i cannot sing

with your lips upon my mouth

for my arms remember

ropes that bind

and my mouth remembers

being gagged

and my legs can’t dance

when they are spread and tied

no-dancing-allowed
