A dancer forced to apply her skills in unwanted ways

 

tap, tap, tap

I'll never forget how Kindrea could dance. Almost since the moment she could walk.

When I close my eyes I can hear the delicate tap tap tap from her wooden toe point shoes, placing themselves, on that large wooden stage.

Long legs you wouldn't believe, black hair to her waist, and delicate hands with soft, white, long fingers. She was always a girls girl. Feminine, giddy, fashionable, popular and I might add always being courted by one boy or another.

She cries to write;

Dear Diary, when did I get here?

You are new to me

Know the first pink tutu I ever wore sported the most beautiful silk bow on my lower back

That's the beginning of what was remembered and brought me here

Worked her points, at age, so hard daily toes that bled

Almost silent wood on air in my landing, she entered stage left and leaped

A miracle was born and it was extended from her hips down

Many years perfected her poise, steps and grace

In private jumping and screaming for joy endlessly

One morning, now the featuring act on the board

Held hope though terribly lonely stretching out in her pink silk sheets

When the phone rang, as usual fooled the world to believe wide awake in promise

Waking had became a naked solo whisper game

How many routines could she call out

Now interrupted

From the bell of somebody's cell

Acting breathless but chipper Hello came from her mouth

Only to be held from a stranger insulting the endorsement, her job now, in grave danger

The cell fell to the floor as she put her fist through the door

Mistake had to be it, such unprofessional hacks, disregard then, and for work as she packed

 
No tears, head high, no turning back to see what just died

Words are infectious in any Industry

Word was out Kindrea's known shoes had become musty

Switching from perspective changes in person given the events that transpired next

Arriving on stage, full dress rehearsal, walking out routines she squeezed herself

She was warned to leave or be escorted out

No employment entertained her there anymore

She was a clown in a house among beasts now

Feasts younger dancers carded reservations coming

In a single breath she could be anyone of them, anyone

Surrender came with rock bottom when her name was murdered for good

tap tap tap wooden thoughts

Tap tap tap tapped out of cash and broke

Her life only knew a physical profession

A physical form of attention

And a physical perfection

Only natural when the Adult Film Industry

came recruiting stronger the weaker she got

It broke her down to do one film and keep physical

Unfamiliar but not, rent was due with one weeks grace

 

Just one film turned to dozens

Blood in the water

Time to switch Unions

Blood on her clothing

No blood on her toes

Her love

An entire different rhythm now

Men became somethin of haters

Then worse, numb

Performances were perfect, still the feature

Her humble breasts dictated

What would happen next

She hated how her dream and her nightmare

Felt the same

The reality of her new name

Not repeated

Nor conceided

A new star was born

In the film of porn

Kimberly,
A fetching story of one adored and then used, an always agonizing fall. The harder to recuperate from. Thank you for sharing it here.

Reviewed by William Huff 6/9/2012
Mary Shelley, the so-precious author of "Frankenstein," a timeless gift of an author, as you are, Kimberly, equally masterful, equally transformative, and as much, breathtaking, and seemingly for you, she wrote:

"I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves."

God bless you....I wish for much joy in your precious, precious life..
