you're still awake, and the radio's playing something slow and forgettable.
you sit up in bed, feel the shadows shudder in the change of light.
you feel the shift, too -
a tiny angular point seems to flood your veins with cold.

the music quickens and you're sure it'll wake the house
but you only hear the dog -
pad pad pad pad down the hallway
and it's like a drumbeat.

you stand, the bones of everything smoothing in yellow lamplight
below your feet you're sure the floor's further away than yesterday

the shadows stretch awake around your walls
reflect the slow sad radio voice

and you know you'll sleep soon
but for now you dance



 
sooo out of my comfort zone here... let's see how this goes

    this is so amazingly written! i love the last stanza where you finish the poem so nicely leaving the audience with themselves to reflect back on the beautiful phrased words.
