And she walks out, Amidst thunderous applause.

Poised and graceful;
Her hands twist around,
Feet gliding,
Jumping,
Pirouetting;
Going round and round.
Her eyes
Reflect
Mirages of emotions,
Her body,
Speaks
in whispers
a language
lost and ancient.
Each step
Decodes and puzzles
A violent contradiction.
The music,
her only companion,
troughs and crests
Caressing her movements.
Gently like
A lover’s touch,
The crescendo
Bringing her
Bittersweet euphoria.
Suddenly it slows;
Weaving notes of a last goodbye.
The feet spinning madly
Still,
Hands holding body
Spread outward.
Body slacks,
Head bows down.
The single spotlight glows.
And she walks out,
Amidst thunderous applause.
