Never Stop Singing

I walk into view.
Thousands of eyes turn to mine.
Skirts flowing.
Heart racing.
Feet thumping.
Though I am not alone I still feel like the sole soul in the universe.
I hear the notes from the instruments.
Stringed,
keyed,
wind,
brass,
percussion.
All playing as one.
Like the flit of a butterfly's wings.
Light and soft we-
I
Start to sing.
The music flows through me.
Ever flowing.
I will not-
Cannot
ever stop singing.

Wonderful! I'm a horrid singer, but I play the clarinet and feel just the same during a concert.

Well done! :D

Yeah, I'm sure everyone who performs feels like this on stage. It's something you work so hard for and it finally happens. It's the best feeling in the whole world :))

I love this. It has an emotional aspect about it. Along with a personal one. With that being said these pieces are the true meaning of writing poetry.

I'm so sad. I had my last concert for the semester yesterday and now I have to wait until August to experience this feeling again. Thank you for reading.
