Slippers the colour of moonlight slide across the slicked wooden floor.
A skirt the shade of blood fans out with each step.
One twirl after the next- a slim back arching as toes leave the floor for a second.

Then they touch back down with the grace of an angel.

Hair glistening gold- no, bronze -flutters in waves to a small waist,
And illuminates the owner in a halo of light.

Pale skin stands out, flawless and youthful as it curves and dips with each movement.
Then vanishes past a smooth collarbone and beneath a corset that hugs the slim torso.

Eyes that shimmer with the brown of milk-chocolate focus on the lights above,
And cherry-painted lips part to exhale through two rows of ivory teeth.

A silhouette of beauty, of song, and an angel of delicacy,
Dives forward and arches out once more before landing with the gentleness of a swan,
Arms extended like the pale wings of the bird itself.

A chest heaves with exhaustion, but dewy skin glows with pride.
Applause erupts from the once-awestruck audience.

Those slippers turn and tuck down on one knee- a formal bow is in order.

And the angel- the dancer -rises to exit the stage without a sound.

And silence falls again as the music fades to nothing.
Just something I thought I'd upload while I'm stuck at home.

I used to do ballet- for maybe five or six years when I was younger. I stopped after an accident on stage left me traumatized to go in front of another crowd again, however.

But still, this is if I put myself back into that position now, after I've grown and matured.

I miss these days v.v
