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.
