Thank you to everyone for the support!

FREE WRITING

Woosh
The curtain goes up
Eyes blinded by the light
Feet rooted to the ground
Then...
The music starts
The melody, ingrained in my head, ingrained in my bones
Wakes me up
Toes pointed
Legs straight
I start to dance
The pitter-patter of point shoes on the dance floor
Lost in a dream of the glow of lights and the soft music
I follow the beat with my legs and arms
Gracefully moving across the stage
Until, at the end, the final notes playing
I stop--
APPLAUSE!
Loud, blaring, sudden
I make my bow and move off the stage for the next dancer to perform. 
 
The last time I did ballet was when I was six. I just wrote this poem because my Pinterest feed is filled with beautiful pictures of ballerinas, and I feel this would be how they would feel at a performance.
