    ~for two VERY special poets, as they step to the mic 2night~

    :heart: :heart:


    you’ll be
    standing in back of
    the dimly lit lounge
    your eyes will slowly
    adjust to the scene,
    scanning the room,
    imagining faces of the
    people as they will appear before you

    you might
    feel a bit light-headed,
    heart pounding in your chest
    you’ll bite your lip, skimming
    through familiar lines
    from the pages of your life
    YOUR LIFE, carefully recorded
    in the binder you hold close
    to your side

    in a moment, you will take
    the stage…
    the waiting
    crowd will "feel" your
    words, "touch" your soul…
    they will close their eyes as
    they begin to "see" you,
    nod their heads with "understanding"
    raise their hands, "in the spirit",
    snap their fingers because
    they "heard" you…

    and embrace your poetry
    because they "tasted"
    & LOVED you!

    And it was sooooo beautiful A

    I never knew it would feel or taste this way. Now that I have had a slice...I am definitely ready to sample the main course

    Thank-you for knowing before I even dreamed of what was coming. You are the BEST!!

    Nothing like a friend
    Whose there by your side
    To hold your hand
    Through lifes long ride

    Capturing that feeling, that experience of reading your thoughts in front of a crowd. I have yet to expereince this,, but you so brought it to life. What else can be expected from you poet? Well done.
