I'm a young author making a break in the world of writing. I have experience writing short stories, books, poetry, and reviews.

5-6-7-8-a-poem

5-6-7-8

The world around me is dark

There’s a hum of movement, light taps of shoes-

the heart hammering in my chest


1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

Ba-da-ba. Ba. Ba-da-ba. Ba-ba

“Introducing-”

People roar.


Tap. Tap. Tap. The music starts as I walk to my spot

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

Ba-da-ba. Ba. Ba-

5-6-7-8.


Explode; arm up; leg out; turn and slide

Keep smiling

Don’t fall

I flow with the music, moving through the choreo I’ve done

so many times

so many times.


1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

1-2-3-4


I fill my lungs with precious air

Cheering fills my ears

The stage goes dark.


This poem can be read separately or as a continuation of Move.
