*thump thump*
*thump thump*
*thump thump thump*
I feel my heart pounding on my chest walls. It’s aching.
*thump thump*
The ground pounds on the sole of my feet.
*thump thump thump*
The floor rumbles in anger some more.
My mind fills with wonder. Where am I? What is going on? What am I feeling — Animosity? Sadness? Anxiety?
The world around me slowly reveals itself as the haze gradually clears and my senses regain consciousness.
Multi-color lights dance on top of my head. Cocooned shaped creatures around me wiggle in unison to the beating of my heart, no, to the beating of the floor.
Wrong again.
They are ebbing to the beat of the drums vibrating vigorously on the floor; to the barrage of musical notes reverberating into the Earth.
They roar in a frenzy of excitement.
My vision becomes clearer as the moist air greets my skin and the smell of warm bodies surround me. They’re people, not cocoons!
*thump thump*
My body sways to the undulating beats. “Relax. Give into the music.”
Exhilaration, excitement, elated — these are the emotions I am allowing myself to feel.
Don’t over think it; don’t worry about it. For tonight, the pain, the sorrow, the regret… be liberated from it.
Be Free.

    • Thank you for taking the time to read my piece! I was worried that adding the bit of “Don’t over think it; don’t worry about it. For tonight, the pain, the sorrow, the regret” was going to ruin the positive ending I was hoping for!
