Elegy for, by /r/Poetry

"The thoughtless World to majesty may bow
Exalt the brave, & idolize Success
But more to Innocence their Safety owe
Than Power & Genius e'er conspired to bless"
                             -Thomas Gray

a fancy ballerina
human connection is a fancy ballerina
      human 
connection 
is littered with crystals
         How do you grieve 
  for 
a profile picture?
Life 
is 
a 
fancy ballerina
     human concept
        The 
         temperature is a fancy 
ballerina
       human connection 
is littered 
with trash.
Awake 
all 
         night in front of an open window.
        Hey it's me again
Blue skies and fresh air
        As I 
walked through the park, I 
saw
Blue skies 
  and fresh air
       As I walked through the park, 
I 
     saw
Blue skies and it is a fancy ballerina
  human 
connection is littered 
crystals
   How 
         do you grieve for a 
        profile picture?
      Life,
    I could write a songShe’s a fancy ballerina
