Day Fifty – “Last Dance” (In For A Penny / Dreamers)

You push your fingers into the spaces between hers, lead her out onto the floor and into the very centre of the crowd. She casts a glance behind her at the man she should be dancing with before you turn her again, the other dancers obscuring him from view. The rest of the night passes in a blur of stolen kisses and little golden lights hanging from the archway; in the morning she lies awake with her head pillowed on her husband’s chest, listens to his quiet snoring, and can’t help but feel guilty when she wants the dream back.
