We meet each other, synchronized steps,
turning into flares of words that are like fire on the tongue,
glowing and ready to light
the waiting path ahead.
A chorus of whispers, soft as a first kiss,
fills the air and fuels the determination
powering our muscles as we run
to the portal
that will cast off the personas we present to the world
so we can dance together,
until the concept of time is meaningless.
