"ABRAXIA THE DANCER" contains 23 of my poems inspired by a woman named Abraxia.
She is real; her name is not. I used to have an unrequited crush on Abraxia;
we were never more than friends.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I see a curtain slowly open,
Revealing Abraxia.
Crouched forward on the stage
With her head between her knees,
Slowly,
With the music fading in,
Slowly lifting her head,
She begins to softly sing,

"I'll remember it . . . ,"

Slowly swaying to her feet
As her feet, hands, and face paint a picture of pain
Felt more deeply than any physical wound;
Determined to break forth from the fear and the pain,
To reveal who she really is--
A warrior of truth
Blasting the flaming blowtorch of truth
Into the very face of Deception,
The face she loves but must leave.

Slowly,
With the music fading out,
She plummets (slower than a feather falls)
Under the crushing weight of
The blowtorch of truth, now buried deep within her soul.

Crouched forward on the stage
With her head between her knees,
Abraxia slowly fades
Behind a closing curtain.
