The agitato tempo of the music
matched by the movements
of the bereft ballerina
leaping into the air
landing perfectly on toes
forcefully twirling whirling
dizzying emotions
releasing heartbreak pain
arabesque onto the stage
a bowed surrender to anguish
she dances she leaps
in torment she weeps

  1. Beautiful Dorianna! I love how you’ve paired the physicality and pain of dancing with emotions. I especially like:
    …a bowed surrender to
    anguish …
    Nicely done!
