Sneakers and boots swarm the shoe rack by the front door.
The apartment is bustling, the air is rustling,
buzzing with the electric bliss of danceable beats,
beer cans clicking open – a romanceable heat fills the air.
I’m there, purple pants gliding by the guidance of my black socks beneath.
I didn’t know that this pretty girl I hadn’t met yet had her bold brown eyes hovering my way,
but I’m glad that when she saw me for the first time, I was at my happiest –
I was just vibing, speaking my soul’s most fluent language.
We broke the ice with our feet and the beat
as our words flowed flawlessly over the backdrop
of about twenty-something other twenty-somethings,
grooving along to the music that moved us.
I let her know that I liked her necklace, and when she said “Thank you!”
I was introduced to my favorite smile in the world.
Today we’re ten years beyond the night we had shared our first song.
Anniversaries and holidays now align
as we dine, travel, work, live, love, laugh, and still dance together.
From days to weeks, months, years, decades, and more
I always look forward to the next time we share a dance floor. – RSM ❤
