The Dance of Life

The spinning, the twirling, you were all so majestic, Coming down gracefully from a leap, You embodied beauty and everything fantastic. You were all but mine to keep. Their jealous gawking and words pushed you to the deep. I walked away, abandoning you to a gallows, But you were just ankles deep in the shallows. Please forgive a stupid boy, For forsaking one by the hallows, Of a life I only hope to destroy.
