Ballerina

Your strength
created by
endless hours
of class
at the barre.

Cruel,
intense,
exacting
to exhibit
delicately
exquisite
technique.

Dizzying
Fouetté,
Piqué
chaîné turns.
Precision
Échappé,
Développé,
 Jeté‘s
rehearsed
long past
what the
human body
can tolerably
endure.

Breathless
in beauty
as you hold
arabesque en pointe
defying
gravity.

Orchestra
left,
center
and right
experience
ethereal
combinations of
unimaginable
agility.

Pain
so artfully
placed
elsewhere-
hidden from
an adoring
audience,
no one
could
fathom.

Only you
 *
Ballerina
 *
know the
sacrifice
for a
Balletomane’s
rapture.
