When I grab my pen
I can see the spotlights pop on
Everything is silent
The world anticipates my words
I allow my pen to touch the blank palate
The palate a metaphor for the mind
The mind a metaphor for an audience
As expression flows
Excitement builds
The silence broken by my thoughts
Makes me moonwalk across lines
And throw my glitter glove in the air
As I have given it my best
Minds go wild
Another great performance
Different from the rest
Leaving eager minds
Starving for more

Everything I do, I do with passion. Come join me and see what I can do with words!

@ Jonpenny
Thank you for leaving a comment. There is something about this that I like no- love as well. I cannot even begin to explain it though lol

Thank You DBurke
Your poetry reminds me of the 12 year old Britians Got Talent, who won and was asked to sing at Michael's Memorial. Listen to what he says at the end...I think that's how you and most of us feel...
