Poem: Downfall

Whoops, it’s been a few days now since I last did a five-line poem.


we dazzled under the spotlight, as shadow smiles
watched us slow dance around balloons we
didn’t know were already deflating before
our last step and last beat of the song;
the light applause ushered in our downfall.
