Her movement: half in shadow, half in light

Ultra thin ice she skates around the mind

Enchanted with duality and flight.

The rink is empty, her skates, left behind.

One man one shadow cast long after its end

He sees white swan, his shadow sees black-

Torn from both sides his quarrel seems pretend

And yet the ice beneath begins to crack

Both of her has won him. His life is revered.

She slowly spirals, imagination-

For her he tries to conquer greatest fear

Finding almost a lifeless sensation

Saved just barely by the beloved white swan

Pursuing him, her shadow's lurking on.
