Célestin Boutin, age 16. He is 21 now, just like I am, and I am following his career. All through problems in my life I have danced, and I will always love ballet with all of my heart.
and post notes and photos about your poem like Darren White.
And everytime I jumped too high I knew the floor would catch me
With never failing arms, on pointes pointing down
flexing feet, humble heels high up.
Won't bore you with those terms, but feel with me
the sunlight whirling around my pirouette
and pain, the always present pain
in joints and hips and back
Why dance then, why ballet?
have you ever felt this irresistible urge
that complete addiction
and restlesness if you cannot?
I ride my wheels now
And only dance with words and lines on paper and screen.
I just wanted to share with you my other passion
The one always in my heart :)
Thanks for listening!
