Songs you cant dance to_cover

Songs you can’t dance to

 

The cloud that covers me when

I trace the curve of your back

 

The blindness that overcomes me

when I see the back of your knee

 

The hangover I fight through

on the morning after we touch

 

The momentary blackout you cause

as you lean in eyes closed for a kiss

 

The dense fog that surrounds

when you show me your love

 

The deafening beat of my heart

as it is pressed onto yours

 

The numbing buzz of my skin

underneath your fingertips

 

The frantic swim to the surface

so I don’t drown in my emotion

and in our twisted tangled sheets

 

As I wait for you to come back

from sleep and your dreams

these all invade my head

 

And as with songs you can’t dance to

I am beside you listening to them

in a warm horizontal haze
