Fragile

Painting #6  Theater by Mary Cassatte 1879 

Fragile 

Captivated, alive, 
every ounce of her being, 
coming to life, every delicate 
emotion danced. 

Every mastered note romanced 
her deeply, a love affair long-lasting 
dare not end tonight, dare not 
bow as the curtain closes 
hiding from her 
fluttering heart. 

Sounding off as the drumbeat 
fades into the dressing room, 
reveal your face. She beckons 
her love as the 
curtain remains 
closed.

A profound piece, with a great choice of words, Danetta. Really like the impact of the closed curtain at the end.
