Wait backstage with trembling excitement,
a touch of nervousness in the pit of your
Walk on stage, answering you queue,
Feel the exhilaration as the likes flow out of your mouth,
trying to keep an actor’s face.
Dance the 100 times memorized steps
with a bounce and rhythm.
Feel at home under the bright lights.
Walk off stage,
let the relaxation
and the uncomfortable itchiness of your costume
set for long afterwards.
The pain of loss is there, but fond memories sink in,
