To dance


A moment of bliss
When the sun hits your face
When the sky’s clouds become purple
Cool click
Of your tongue
You climb the steps
Two by two
Warm shower
Of sunlight
A moment of bliss
I know now
God must love
To dance

My Hands Found You First


My hands found you first
You were dancing in a dark crowd
Young, lost, and drunk on freedom
Taking shots to numb the edges of your awkward body
Eyes wide open with a smile hanging on your face
Your feet stumbling across the dance floor

And my hands found you first
Ships and stars sinking in your eyes
You told me that I was spinning
And I laughed, already reaching for the bar
Waiting to embark on the same cruise as you
Hey waiter, make it strong
I cannot miss my flight

For my hands found you first
Your heavy breath gliding on my bare neck
Your arms holding my back
As if I was about to break into a million pieces
For in all that darkness
I guess you saw me right
Somehow I learnt the way to dance
Without watching where my feet were going
Navigating between expectations and judgements
The hidden gazes behind the disco ball
There are endless nights and endless loves to be found
And I know that I’ll never be able to figure you out

But my hands found you first
And you gave me a second
I wish there were words that would make it all clear
Words that could encompass the breaking beauty of this instant
All the mornings and sleeps and dreams that led up to this moment
Your eyes in mine, everything proclaiming that you and I were first, always
That these hands were meant to find you, stranger
Collect the words and poems already written on your skin
Finding out that my words could never catch the way this light kisses you now
Leaving me to embrace the ghost of a dream
Ringing in my ears like a faded memory
Luminous oblivion
And my hands found you first
Before I lost myself
