I was a dancer.

In ballet,
the cracks
of your feet,
can cure all
of the cracks
in your heart.

To be loved
the way
I loved
ballet

is all I
needed
is all I
wanted.

I wanted love,
and to be
the only
one loved.

Love
can be
tamed
and
forced
and
fed.

But when
lied to,
love is
broken,

and the
lover
must
be
punished

and fed
the vomit
of the heart

like a dog
that needs
to be
put
down
