he had tried
so many times
to sing an aria
with unbelievable
be auty
but the fates visited only
with the grandeur of Lenski,
the depth
of his love.
as he flew above the stage
Olga turned around
and couldn’t believe
the burning passion
radiating from his heart.
they joined hands and lifted
above the scenary
beyond the theatre.
this was more than anything
they had ever touched
they flew
into the arms
of Tchaikovsky
