CarpeDiem. (6)

Here,
Us dancing
Queening like Beyoncé
Blaming it all on the Vodka and the MaryJane
Dreading the hangover tomorrow
Enjoying the looseness of our bodies
In love with each other
In love with ourselves
In love with the DJ
Crushing on the bartender
Saying things, we won’t remember
Light as flowers falling in Fall
Full as gooseberries ready for plucking
Unbent
Middle fingers in the air
Untamed
As the song ends and I hear your voice
I laugh at nothing
I’m happy
I’m home.
