She Wished for a Quiet Soul

She grew tired,

Not in the take a nap tired,

But in the restless,

Can’t stop moving,

Have to go,

Tired.

She didn’t want a restless heart,

A heart that never fully

Felt content

Staying in one place,

Somehow it felt wrong,

Not being completely

Happy exactly where

She was.

She danced,

Without reason

Or rhythm to go with,

She danced because

She could contain it

No longer,

For one reason or another

She had to free herself,

If even from herself.
