Entrechat

I. Unieme

Performing to the sounds of nature,
Concrete jungle cacophony:
Metal crumble; stabbing bullets; restless screams.
Adagio…
Through the uncertainty of the mutated world
And into the rush:
The chaos.
The stress.
The noise.
The stress.
The noise.
The chaos.
Allegro!
Stretched to the limit;
Pushed and prodded.
Allongé!

II. Deuxième

Cabriole
Through the madness;
Keeping balance, not wanting to fall.
Fall! – scream them all.
Trying to keep it smooth, sustained –
Chassé.
Bleeding, aching,
Battered, bruised.
But composed; poised with a smile.

III. Troisieme

Trying to find the way,
The Passion Way;
Confusion as they pull in their different directions,
Contretemps.
Follow the heart; raise the spirit!
Demi-pointes!
Gracefully glide from experience:
To experience;
To failure;
To success;
To calm;
To stress.

Azure

Azure.

Infinite stories of a struggling boy –
destined for greatness.
He knows the way to walk;
he holds the key.

Azure.

Stare deeply and you’ll see:
the boy inside screaming.
He just wants to run away;
far from the pressure.

Azure.

Ice-chambered seclusion…
From his true desires.
He is trapped but dances;
a way to hide his true feelings.

Azure.

His eyes hold a richness unmatched;
so too does his passion.
Yet he runs from his shadow –
the confusion makes him feel low.

Azure.

His soul window melts hearts;
his only gets more confused.
But he knows the truth:
he is quite sure.

Azure.
