Dance Like Your Heart Isn’t Breaking

“Red Velvet” – BGC, 13 January 2016

put on

your red

shoes

and sing

the blues

and try

not

to cry

at the

relentlessness

of time

of life

of age

of death.

 

and dance

like you

were alone

and sing

as if

you’d no

cares;

and weep

in the

silence

in the

stillness

of everything

for the

sorrows

of a

lifetime.

 

put on

your red

shoes

and go

dancing

tonight

and forget

for a

while

all the

pain

all the

grief

all the

heartache

and lose

yourself

in song.

One thought on “Dance Like Your Heart Isn’t Breaking

  1. Exactly. I really like the post’s title “Dance like your heart isn’t breaking.” Music is so incredibly therapeutic. It helps draw emotions out of you that can be hard to feel on their own. Lots of grief these days, but also lots of happiness and things to celebrate. Music helps me get through it all.
