Ballerina's Ballad
I came across a box today that barely filled my hand,
And everytime I opened it, the pink lady took a stand.
I wound her up and she danced across my heart,
Bringing back memories that were lost from the start.
I was taken back in time to when a girl held that box tight.
Watching the ballerina dance when she couldn't sleep at night.
But then one day, the dancer wouldn't dance no more.
The colours faded and all smiles fell to the floor.
So memories were locked in with a golden key.
Locking in traumas that made that girl me.
Until I uncovered her and blew the dust away,
And tried to give her life again to dance one more day.

I do this with pictures.  I didn't have a ballerina.  Not... that I... should have... (awkward silence)

I used to watch my ballerina dance throughout the night when i was young girl. To watch the prettyness of her dress, the smile on her face...

However just like yourself, i closed the box on the ballerina, i too closed the box on me. I am only just begining to have the guts to unlock the box, and find out who i truly am.

This is an excellant write, straight to my favourites.

beautiful write. You convey amazing imagery in this write, with a great talent for turning emotions into a visual metaphor. I really enjoyed this and hope all is going ok for you.

Dear Hannah-
I feel that YOU have a depth that surpasses must in writing-
And this is because you can turn reality and fantasy into a masterpiece of thought-
The thing is we each have a ballerina of some form that rewinds memories from
what it was that has made us who we are so far-
These reflections will have good and bad moments yet it is our life regardless-
SO---Once again I am awed at your talent that has not even come close to its
full potentual and will continue to blossom-
Hemingway-Poe-Twain-Watch out-The generations of writers have a new contender!
I hope all is well for You and that Life is in a great balance-
Best Wishes to You and Yours My Friend~

A well written, painful recollection that one can only hope is fiction. The power of the poem is greatly intensified by the last line, wherein you have "tried" to give the ballerina life with no indication as to the success of that attempt. In this way, you capture the heart of the reader and won't let go. Now I want to see a part 2.  RM.
