I’m ready for the next dance
a second chance
the night is young and
the previous slow song
is ending soon
to be replaced with new
I’m up for
another game
another ride
another try

Never underestimate
a heart’s capacity
to set fire on itself
and rise from its ashes
nobody has a right to say
it took too long
or might be too soon
here’s a lesson on first aid:
the primary step to healing
is to stop the bleeding

and last night
that was exactly
what you did.
