legs

June 9, 2014 at 3:00 pm 16 comments

for more than twenty years…

you completed my lines,

you gave me a dream

and

you challenged my life.

i treated you with respect

and

tender loving care.

in return,

you gave me wings –

allowing me to fly through the air.

you were there at the beginning,

for all the blood, sweat

and

tears,

helped me soar above the sadness –

sustained my life through the years.

though my world no longer revolves

around a dance barre

and

a stage,

i look upon you – now –

still wishing for those days…

forever dreaming…

when life

was

young

and

the heart

was

brave.

leg

found an old pair of friends

    That’s wonderful, both a fitting tribute and lament to the past all rolled into one.

    I kept my last pair of slippers, I didn’t keep the toe shoes. Sometimes I regret it. Like, right now.
