Midnight Rave

Hearts pounding in unison
A room filled with smoke
The high of adrenalin
Like a never ending sugar rush
Glistening bodies of sweat
So close together
As if they were sharing a heart
Pumping the poison of music
Through their veins
Diluting their thoughts

As the fleeing crowd draws you out
And the blazing pit of dancing bodies breaks
It fades into the antidote of cool midnight air
The strong chors of beats
Quiets to the empty streets

The neon lights
Faded to the speckles of distant light
Now the only spot light
Is the dim glow of a moon

The faint screech of sirens
Sends a state of panic
For the unfortunate events
That brought them to there destination

It awakens you from the daze
And makes the cold air whiplash you
Back to reality
Like a slap in the face
Or jumping into an ocean of ice water

The wind is knocked out of you
As you find the night has passed
And your heart now beats for one
For you are alone

Now the only music playing
Is the sounds of your own footsteps
Like piano keys
Playing one note after the other

Getting farther from the beginning
And closer to the end
As you wait to crash
Into a deep state of REM

Dreaming of the next big rush
That will wash your life away
Waiting for the music
To come and consume you
And to make the hours turn to seconds
Because you pray for the rave
And the DJ answers you
With the pounding of music
So once again
Your hearts will beat in unison
