I Danced

I danced with my scars

and they danced with me

we twirled under moonlight

and sung until three

stars trilled in tune

while planets shifted seas

and I swear the entire cosmos

winked directly at me

I danced with my scars

and they danced with me

around the flames

spiralling endlessly

woodland nightfolk

pranced and made merry

while rabbits and hyenas

dipped a delicate curtsy

around we all whirled

breathless and giddy

so I tore off my veil

and summoned the

courage to be free
