*~She Dances to a Silent Song~*

There are questions she wonít answer-

There are ones, she will not ask.

She stands, as a lone dancer-

Her tears hidden Ďneath her mask.

Movementís graceful, body brilliant,

Eyes are drawn to such a sight.

Tears held in, with such resilience-

Yet alone she screams at night.


Feel the pressure, feel the pain,

Itís the drug in which she uses.

Feel the beauty from her strain,

Itís the eloquence she chooses.

Itís a grand-pliť of choices;

Itís the light that floods the stage,

The encouragements of voices,

Itís her deep secreted rage.


In an arabesque she poses,

The curtain lowers to the floor.

The crowd is throwing roses,

Applauding to see more .

She has no more left to offer-

No tendues, no pirouettes;

For her doctor says sheís dying-

Yet alive, sheís not felt yet.


Afraid to face her reality,

She ignored the words he said;

Ovarian cancer, in stage three-

She knows sheíll soon be dead.

She gets weaker by the day,

Ignored for almost a year-

All she ever did was pray,

But inside she shudders in fear.


She lies inside the hospice room-

Her beautiful body withered away,

Her family senses impending doom,

Beside her bed her loved ones stay.

Her young life, this disease has stole;

It stripped her of her poise.

Softly dances away her soul-

To the music that wonít make a noise.


Author's Notes:
Though I have lost family and friends from cancer, this is not based on my life. Just an example of what can be stolen from you at any given time at any given moment. Cherish life, you never know how long it will be so enjoyable.

You paint quite a moving picture with your words Rin.... Your depiction shows what a terrible disease this is and how it can rob you of everything! This is a great piece, with great flow to it.  Henry

What a brilliant write!! Your writing talent is certainly a

gift. This is just beautiful yet with a touch of sadness. Cancer is

so horrible and claims so many lives daily. I just wish there

a cure. You have done an excellent job with this write dear.

Amazing!! Touching indeed.

I am trully in awe of your talent!

i have seen cancer ravage the lives of members of my family also, and you displayed it in a circumstance that deeply demonstrates how it can steal lives away. This made my stomach churn as I read through. Excellent visuals also.

A very insightful write, Rin, and one that seems so horribly accurate. One that puts us in touch with so many feelings about the disease. Well done!

My mother dies from ovarian cancer the doctors neglected her and she was not given the scans she needed.... would be alive today but for their incompetense. It is a horrid disease my cousin has just found out she has breast cancer and has been having chemo.She has to have her breast removed and wants them both taken off in case it goes into the other one. Her sister found out she had uterine cancer a few years ago she is now in remission. My aunt (mums sister had throat cancer thank god it was benign. I have had cancer cells on my cervix but had them taken off. They have to keep an eye on you if it is genetic. I know how hard it is to see the ones you love wither away in front of you. My mum use to ask me am I dying my reply was no why? because once the person knows I feel they give up and without hope they are a shell from day one. Each moment is so very precious Ren


A beautiful heartbreaking write


Love Angelxx
