Something in my blood runs wild...
adrenaline's my energy--
a dancing, laughing, wicked child--
a spinning top unleashed from string.

Something in my heart beats twice...
as if in need of memory.
My thoughts are tumble of the dice,
I gamble on the green of me.

There is something volatile,
even in my quest for peace.
I yearn for the phenomenal--
I long to dance with me...

*smiling at you* ....

*skipping around the forums singing* ........
"this about you--I already knew" ...  
lalalala doodoodooo"

wanna sing with me? ... you know the one

"people see me
I'm a challenge
to your balance
I'm over your heads
how I confound you
and astound you
to know I must be one of the wonders
of god's own creation
and as far as you can see you can offer me
no explanation"

serenity,
wonderfully written, full of pep and zeal.

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Well my girl, the wave lengths were talking, apparently, for I hadn't read yours before posting mind, but I am so glad we are both in dance!

Yes i know what you mean..we sort of forget to
dance with ourselves...makes me think of
when i use to dance and hold on to the doorknob ha.. ..when i was
doing dishes as a teen with my mom..
i was a real teenybopper.

(sigh) So very well-said, sweet friend, I think we all have these times where we forget to dance with ourselves then when we cry, when we find ourselvces dancing in hope, we feel peace within ourselves again! (kiss on cheek) We all love you so much, sweet friend, this is fabulous! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Karen, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

quite a vibrant little piece, and not many people I know like themselves that much

I want to say thanks to all, but especially ecrivan--for getting the gist of this one.

It took me a long time for me to "like" me! I still don't most of the time, but I think I'm getting to a place where I just might give me a chance! back atchya!

I hope you never stop dancing with yourself and if you do?  I will be there with my tap shoes on.
