Scared Too Early In Life 10.8.2008 - Poem by Margaret Alice

Listen to the Skater’s Waltz, my heart bursting,
what beautiful melodies, I love waves of feeling
overpowering heart and soul, love the impression
of rising up on the notes; what I love even more

Is feeling a sweet, sharp pain cleaving my heart,
waves turning into electrical circuits of driven
emotion, I feel I should cry for the magic in
notes creating a song of unequalled magic

I love the feeling of a lover imploring a sweetheart
to dance and skate with him, share his adventures,
give him the love in her heart, the feeling that she
longs to comply with his request

But she is scared, skating away daintily, hiding from
life and possible sorrow, scared too early in life, the
wounds in her childish heart have never healed, the
shock of discovery that love doesn’t last

Was too much; still lamenting the loss of her
childhood heroes…
