And on foot she walked

Telling tales on the tips of her toes

Weaving stories with her body

Across the polished floor

With a smile on her face

And all the while

Her feet bled

Inside the sacred shoes.

  1. I love your use of alliteration in the second line! What really stands out to me is the juxtaposition of her performing this beautiful elegant dance, yet bleeding on the inside of the shoes where nobody can see.
