The Lady in the Red Shoes

By saltyman65


 
Hinting at Secrets to frightening to face front forward:
……………………She walks the line carefully………………………..
                                                                                                         
 with… maniacaL candor that only the damaged  comprehends.       
                                                      
                                           
                                     dangling,
  
                                                        Teasing
With things she feels
                                                                          the
            ~but~                                                                 audience,
                                                                  
only in the private wonder of Self.
One Red Shoe

                                              L
                                                    S
                                                            As she Screeches with Delight!
                                                
                                                          “WATCH YOUR HEADS YOU IDIOTS!!!”
