She Danced Once

His name was Darkness.
His name was Broken.
His name was Beauty, and Tragedy.
His name was Hopeful.
His name was Real
And my soul danced.
For a little bit, she danced.

She danced until he broke her legs.
She danced until her ankles bled
And once she recovered she danced again.
She danced carefully.
She danced
Knowing eventually her legs would break again
Because they will never dance the same.
They will never dance as strong.

He saw her dancing and came to her
And thinking she saw light she moved toward him
And stopped when she remembered
That his name was Darkness.
His name was Danger
And she did not know if she could bring him light...
But she wondered
And stood still
Until he decided to dance with her or watch her die.
Watch her be killed.

His name was Darkness
And my soul danced for him.
She danced knowing she would die.
She danced knowing it was fine.
