She remembers waiting three hours in the cold rain.
dense and humid air made her clothes cling to her body.
She remembers entering the building,
the air conditioning refreshing her glistened face.
She remembers the murmur of the crowd around her,
every minute passing the louder her surroundings become.
She remembers the lights slowly dimming
until she couldn’t even see the back of the heads in front of her.
She remembers the close proximity of everyone,
bodies packed closely together with little space to move.
There wasn’t any space to call hers.
She remembers hearing the first note, sending everyone into a frenzy.
melody moving everyone in a left to right motion
like the waves in the sea.
She remembers bodies clashing together to the beat of the music.
She remembers the music getting louder,
bass so loud her could barely hear her own thinking.
She remembers how quickly the night progressed,
it felt like only seconds for her;
ethe darkness of the evening was long for the outside world.
She remembers the train ride back home,
a secret vow that she would never forget that night.
