All Eyes on Me

Steady feet
wander blindly in the darkness
as eyes shift restlessly,
searching for a single glint
buried within the fabricated midnight.
A once certain heart
beats fiercely,
caged behind marrow bars,
and memory recedes
into blank trepidation.
Facing the black abyss,
stiff hands tremble,
awaiting a single spotlight
to streak the dark.
A flash.
Expectant glances blur into focus;
captivate me,
they await their satisfaction.
Breath is steadied,
eyes locking into position
above bodiless faces
as thoughts merge.
Two minds become one;
I am born.
