This was written in 2005, probably during my sophomore year of high school. I don't remember much else about it.


My heart begins to beat wildly
As the bass of the drums race to out roar each other
Yells, cheers, and claps reach into my ears
Pulling me out, forcing me to come face to face with the music.
I smile, I laugh, I dance
As the performers on stage begin to tell their story
Full of history, full of passion.
I tap my foot in rhythm
While melody and harmony intertwine.
They whisper into my ears, breathing into my face.
Then suddenly it all stops.
The screen is black, completely veiled by emptiness.
I turn around to find
My younger sibling with the remote control.
