The girl at the silent disco

I want to say thank you

to the girl at the silent disco

who reminded me of

both femininity

and humanity;

what is means

to be fragile

and fierce,

to be kind

and ferocious.

 

A club lit up in colour,

a mind full of anxiety glitter

and you.

The girl at the silent disco

bopping to and fro

before running at me;

causing my glitter to flutter,

scatter but then settle

as she handed me the headphones

so I could listen and dance

to the song she remembered

I had said was my favourite,

a year ago.
