You say you’re cold all the time,
but I think the reason you need the extra sweater
is because you run warm.
The warmer you are,
the colder everyone else must feel.
I know how people surrounding you
are always trying to find a way
to bask in your warmth.
I know, because I’m one of them.
It happens to you
when music touches your skin
and we can see it flow right through you.
It’s light and free
and people might question
whether your movements
are good dancing,
or bad dancing.
All we know for sure
is that we’d like to join you.
We’d like to get taken to that space you occupy,
where the fireflies look like fairies.
The kind of place where you don’t just see emotion,
you are able to feel it quite deeply.
We want to taste sweet sangria
and laugh so loud it’s shocking
(we forgot we were capable of laughing that hard).
We want to thaw in the shelter
of that feeling you give off,
because that feeling,
we want to dance with you.
