Drowning myself
in this bitter concoction
music grinding in my ears
my heart palpitated

My right foot
tapping to the beat of the music
mounting excitement
I finally stood

I twirled
my arms flailing
gyrating hips
eyes closed

Sweat pouring
a carefree feeling
tense muscles loosen
I missed grooving to upbeat music

I do not have 
the gracefulness
of a ballerina
but I can dance the Rumba
