The Ballet Dancer


She sheds her skin on stage,

a former ballet dancer,

grown mad with rage,

her pink tutu and tights

have turned into a staight jacket,

as her life had turned to a wrong page,

no sparkles or shining lights,

only dark and lonely nights,

and no one left to understand,

she was always the dancer on demand,

now she can't even two-step or tap,

she is stuck lying on the gurney,

day after day,

stuck with pins and needles,

and forced to take meds,

she is no longer a diva,

following all the other fashionistas,

she lost herself in the 'scene'

and went crazy...

and now she is too far gone,

to even notice...~
