Experiencing the Human Condition

June 16, 2017

Months and months
Have led to this
Months and months
Playing on repeat

School is out and I’m speeding off
Former love for the road is
Replaced with butterflies

The car is parked and
We walk past the endless line
The piercing wind is nothing but
A reminder of what’s to come

The sun goes down
The anticipation goes up
The flood gates open
The crowd rushes in

I feel the shoving and sore neck from
Gazing up at the ceiling
The Fillmore really is a beautiful venue
I hear the lies told to move up just one more
I smell the mix of perfume and cramped bodies sweating
Alliances are made with
New found friends

Lights dim
Heart rates spike, the wait is over
The first strum of the bass vibrates my chest
Adding to the excitement
My idol, the person I love
Is directly in front of me
My dreams did not do this moment justice

Everyone gets lost
Song after song
See the smiles when favorites are performed
All the waiting
Has paid off

Everyone’s hands are in the air
Everyone’s jumping up and down
Everyone’s having a good time

He says goodnight
Lights are raised
Energy still high
The reluctance to leave
Is tangible

The night is over
The car ride home is the
Movie of a night
Playing on a loop

The wait has started again
