Dance by Tracy Seiden

They dance with each other.

Their arms wrap around one another like the soft caress of angel’s wings. The music just begins, notes slow and sweet, inviting them to stay under stars sparkling like diamonds on black velvet. They wear masks so carefully crafted to keep their secrets.

They dance with each other.

Their bodies move in unison, swaying to melody as it expands to fill their hearts thinking maybe this could last.  Maybe this can be magic if only they have the courage to remove their masks, to be vulnerable once more.

They dance with each other.

Their passion rises as music hits its crescendo, crashing into one another heartbeats quickening breath coming faster as the clock strikes midnight. They stand each before the other, for these few moments time stands still. He can think of no future without her or she without him and the masks fall.

They dance with each other.

The music now slows once more; secrets revealed their bodies lean into one another. She breathes out, he breathes in. The sun appears on the horizon, lighting up the dark spaces, shining brightly on their faces now unmasked.

They dance with each other.

Now no longer dancing with ghosts of the past.
