    I'm trembling...
    The thought of failure is smothering;
    each gasp for breath only prolongs this feeling.
    My heart is racing...
    I'm going to be sick- but it's too late to run;
    cower in the waiting room chair until it's my turn
    now the hard part has begun.

    This script is terrible- my voice is hoarse but their blank faces make me want to prove them wrong.
    I say my name for the cameras- flash a smile and start.
    The me that I turn into is a stranger; my heart- their heart; my body still but they move at their own will and speak with words that I rarely use.
    This person is brave... this woman is kind... this is the person I become in my mind.

    Being afraid of failure- or too afraid to try; with both options behind me I smile and lie.
    I'm a happy person.
    I'm successful and sweet.
    On the inside I'm dead- but they don't care so long as I don't bleed.

    Pubic Speaking.

    Fly away, tummy butterflies! You make me feel ill.
    Hibernate behind my eyes; and sleep forever still.
    You make me start to cry... but I hold the tears inside...
    For now you will stay fed-- these harsh feelings that could kill.

    Fainting Spell.

    The darkness did pass, leaving a film of mist...
    Heavy headed- muggy headed; stomach doing flips.
    Landed harshly on the floor- this head did stay intact.
    Always knew from start to end, this feeling would come back.

    You have a definite talent. I like your style and your imagination, you convey your feelings quite well. I hope to hear more from you.

    The Taste of Success.

    I feel it on my lips; not gentle like a kiss-
    but it stings me like an acid; is cold and hard to miss...
    Shivers up my spine; as I read line by line-
    and feel eyes on mine; nervously, I feign blind...
    I can't see this success, nor do I feel it as it builds.
    But it lingers on my tongue- far past the time I'm done.

    Lights Out.

    When those hot lights fade, I feel dizzy...
    It's a low drop from a sudden high when I realize that the show is over and I have to be me again.
    Exit stage left- bow- and curtains fall...
    Once I take off my makeup, it's back to the lifelong performance of keeping up this facade.
    The real me is crying; but you cannot see it for the tears are hidden by the mask I call my smile.

    Underneath.

    A bleeding heart without a sound- like a mute waterfall of despair;
    Beautiful when first it's found but explorer please beware...
    Beneath the blue enchanting vibe are rocks the shape of spears;
    Come close but do not cross over and search it's underneath.

    This one isn't a poem, actually-- but song lyrics.
    I just finished my first draft and the sample recording, so I will share them here.
    They are the fitted English re-version lyrics of a Japanese song that was originally in Korean (lol) by 'Younha'- called Memory (or Kioku, in Japanese)


    He's smiling, even though I frown... I realize that I- am in denial of the truth...
    And holding onto his cold hand...I'm crying inside- because I can still feel your warmth.

    And even though our flame has died down; fond memories have faded to grey- I chase away what's left of your heart, but I cannot stay away!

    And now,
    As time goes by and the spring turns so quickly into the fall- I can't forget that smile of yours; though it hurts me so...My heart will never forget how you made it fly!

    (even if we cannot meet again...)

    Even if I throw away all of the pictures I have, and lock them up and throw away the key- I can't--forget the past or stop to cry; The love I have will never die!

    His scent will fill me up with joy... and although I know- it's not you, I pretend it's so.
    And everywhere that I try to go... you follow me there- the phantom that is always near~

    But still,
    As time flies by and the seasons are so quickly changed; the memory of your voice will all but be erased... My heart will never forget how you made it fly!

    (even if we never ever meet again...)

    Even if I delete all the photos I hid- and never see them; and pretend that I never did... the thought of you will never die; the love I have- I'll keep inside!


    Because you exist in my heart... your memory will never fade- and even though it brings me pain (even though it hurts...)... I continue to remember you.

    And now,
    As time goes by and the spring turns so quickly into the fall- I can't forget that smile of yours; though it hurts me so...My heart will never forget how you made it fly!

    (even if we cannot meet again...)

    Even if I throw away all of the pictures I have, and lock them up and throw away the key- I can't--forget the past or stop to cry; The love I have will never die!

    Madly.


    I am truly, madly, still...
    Take the arrow from my broken heart,
    Wipe the blood from your hands,
    Forget I was ever here.
    Allow me to disappear.
    Hear this heart beat- stop-start-still.
