You catch a glimpse of her bare heel as she darts behind the tree
And you are close, but not close enough
And you are quite sure that you can hear
Her heavy breathed laughter
Drifting through the woods
Amongst the ecstatic chirping
Of spring-fevered aviaries
Feathers dropping all around you
Like angels fallen
Into Earthly pleasure.
Your blood runs hot
And your legs pump with abandon
Naked feet falling into each step
Without needing to be told
Where to go.
You were made for this,
I told you so.
Once you were tired and timid
And holding back
But you felt the calling even then
And it drove you to madness.
Drawing curtains over the sadness
Pacing circles into the floorboards
Wearing them down
Until you fell right into the ground.
Well, here you are now.
You’ve done the hard work
Of pushing through the constraints
Of your old shell
And bursting open,
Now, give ’em Hell.
Give them fire and desire
Spread your petals open
And receive the Sun.
Dance with devas and dragons
Pounding steps along the forest floor
Chasing the reflection of your own desire
And finally catching up
And finding more.
Show us what you came here for.
