her stomach flips in anticipation
and moving towards her
across a smoke filled room
his intention is clear
'clock strikes upon the hour
and the sun begins to fade'
with her hand in his
drifting towards the dance floor
they inch close
'oh, wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody'
she's conscious of the length of him
pressed firmly against her
and the sea of bodies
moving in rhythm
pulsing red then green
in the glow of lights
'yeah, wanna dance with somebody
with somebody who loves me'
losing herself in the moment
in the movement
in the music . . . . . until
'sooner or later the fever ends
and I wind up feeling down'
a wet sensation brings her to her senses
there's a tongue probing her ear
Inspired by a teenage disco and the Whitney Houston song 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'.
