I love the Stage
by Leah Banicki
A simple platform, lights and a room full of seats,
Why is it so thrilling?
The lights are bright and leave the stars in your eyes
Front and backstage is usually dirty ...
The crowd not always the most responsive.. and yet
They are watching me... they care what I have to say-
what I am doing at that moment
The adrenaline of the performance starts before I got out-
and stays with me long after I finish
The crowds eyes follow me on stage, wherever I go they go with me
It's a drug... I'm pretty sure
and a privilege...
