A Connection, the Night of a Disc Jockey

Days, hours, minutes of endless preparation.
An Anxiety filled body before approaching the venue.
Ongoing sleepless nights.
Stress felt deep in the chest.
Constant worry of performing to the highest ability.
Expectations that the exquisite sounds will stimulate the crowd.
A slight moment of ambitious positive though.
Bringing connection between two worlds.

Weekends the dance floor is moving.
Dancers can feel the bass vibrating through their feet.
Treble thrusting through their hearts.
On the dance floor all troubles and worries are left behind.
Muffled voices heard over heavenly sounds.
The dance floor brings joy and safety.
The dance floor, up lifting the soul.
Bringing connection between two worlds.

Disc Jockey, a veteran in the industry.
Watching the movements on the dance floor.
With a look of glazed concentration.
Searching music libraries for sounds of perfection.
The music selections, experimental.
Providing energy matched by the active bodies.
Hyped interactions with dancers.
Bringing connection between two worlds.

The lights dim, the music fades to a silence.
The dance floors muffled voices turn noiseless.
DJ’s heart racing, thoughts of self-doubt.
Isolated night in the booth, lonely travel home.
Pushing through an unfathomable depression.
The hours of exhausting adrenaline winding down.
Aftermath nightmares of a performance on repeat.
Bringing connection between two worlds.
