Dancing in Silhouettebytheravenfox©
You see the leap, but not the landing.
I wobble and fumble.
I throw my arms up and smile though
Always keep smiling
You see me turn and think I'm graceful.
It took years to polish that whirl.
Because I'm not the dancer you think I am.
Always keep on your toes.
You see me glide across the stage.
Look away before the perfection falters.
Jeté en avant grande for you all.
Always make it look effortless.
Look at the pretty costume, the bright lights
the scenery, the other dancers, anywhere!
You can make out the outline.
I'm only dancing in silhouette.
