Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes she falls

Crashing to the ground

Bruising her spirit

Pain pierces the skin

Erupting like a volcano

Spewing all over

Can’t escape it

Behind the scenes she cries

Hot tears spilling down her cheeks

Drying out her mouth

Creating a pounding in her head

Can’t escape it

Behind the scenes she’s teased

Tormented and mocked

Around her are laughs and smirks

While she stands frozen

Shaking and humiliated

Can’t escape it

On the stage she dances

Swirling and twirling

Graceful, elegant

Leaping and landing

Poised and pretty

Perfectly executed

And they will never know.

What happened behind the scenes.
