Dancing With The Vase

In a fancy playful dance
I lingo through the room.

With tiny twirls
And graceful swirls
I flew across the room.

With a great clash
And painful bash
I hit a solid wall

From high above
The fragile wicked vase
Lost its sturdy steady base.

Tipping, rocking, shifting
From east to west,
Kneeling from the edge,
Diving down a well,
Only falling to its end.

Turning, flipping, and flopping
It spun in a rolling twirling fashion.

WIth a quick, sudden, shock
It crashed,
WIth a large, loud bang.

Crying in pity and guilt,
Assured for a short, sharp, smack.

I bent to my knees
Prayed to be free
Troubled,
Where I will be?
