Chaos Found Her (first published on blog April 2013)

Chaos was tattooed on her inner thigh

And sometimes

When she is dancing

You can find it lingering in her smile

Twinkling from the corner of her eye

As she twirls around, around

Arms up, fingers tickling the spinning lights

She sways in time with the music

And a part of her unravels slowly as the song continues

If you look closely, you can find her

As she slowly falls apart

And you almost want to collect her and all her pieces

Hold them close as the night continues on

And she just keeps spiraling around, around

Feeling like if you stop watching, you will let her go

To disappear into the shadows

Fall away into the night

She had chaos tattooed on her inner thigh

And sometimes

When she is dancing

You find it knotted around your wrist

Tugging you in slowly

Until you can’t breathe and find yourself

Swaying away to the beat of the music

Taste her on your mouth

Feel her in your hands

As she sways to the music

Slowly unravelling with every song

Makes you want to gather her up and all her pieces

Hold them close

Pulling her away from the edge

Hiding her from the chaos that she always seems to chase
