Heavy breath brought onwards by the dance,
A fury of streaks of neon,
Jerky movements,
Hypnotize those who watch my body give into the beat.
Exhaustion wears on my achy body,
But I can
t seem to stop the motion.
The DJ throws the electronic beats into the crowd
And we can
’t stop,
We can’t help it,
We’re out of control.
Sweat drips from every pore,
So very wet everywhere,
Heat crushing the mass,
And we fight through the weighted air,
Pushing through it with our frenzied bodies.

This joyous high we’ve conceived with our mate partner;
The music.
Beat on steady until we drop,
Slowly like flies in the summer
s harsh waves.
Our flesh lusts and craves for this,
This ritual of the youth of our kind and the intimacy of night entwined.
