Stage Fright

Photobucket


Stage Fright

I don't know the answers
I don't know my lines
I can't hear the music
I can't find the time
The dancers are shoeless
The mime turns to speak
Stage left and stage right
behind the curtain they creep

Abandoned, alone
in the glare of the lights
All eyes are on you
It's your opening night
Blindly, you see
beyond the back row
of darkness
The echo of laughter
A single shadow of fright
