Cracked (Hers)

Through the door,
she felt his stare
holding admiration
beyond compare.
As time went on,
she craved his gaze,
so she reached​ farther
with each new day.
Her leaps grew larger.
Her jumps rose higher.
Her spins lasted longer.
Til the day
she heard the crack,
fell to the floor
and there she sat.
She clutched her leg
in pain and fear,
and felt her dreams
break at the touch.​
Yet still she felt
his eyes on her
with love and admiration
that did not waver.

Prompt: Cracked
