"... How dreary to be somebody-- How public like a frog;
To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"
-Emily Dickinson


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.

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 :))

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

Well done! :D

♥ I've made mistakes in my life. i've let people take advantage of me, and i accepted way less than i deserve. But, i've learned from my bad choices, and even though there are some things i can never get back and people who will never be sorry. i'll know better next time and i wont settle for anything less than i deserve. ♥

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.

Really wonderful. I know how this is. 

What do you perform?! :)
