Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets

29. Encore

Click.

 

The lights go up,

an empty stage.

Anticipation hangs,

waiting for the-

 

Hum

 

of the speakers,

vibrating, starting.

The cheers of the crowd

drown out the echo as-

 

“Check.”

 

The microphone works,

the crowd goes quiet.

The hot air is electric,

charged and ready for the-

 

Squeal

 

of a guitar,

the opening note. 

The lights converge,

the crowd gives a-

 

Roar

 

as the stars come out,

playing their songs.

Legends of music,

opening with a-

 

Pound

 

of the drums

as people push close,

hot and cramped, 

yearning for another-

 

Thump

 

of the bass,

matching the pulse 

beating in the heart

of the fans who scream-

 

“Yeah!”

 

with the singer,

loud and excited.

Reeking of alcohol,

people anticipate the-

 

Blare

 

of the famous song, 

the glorious cacophony.

Inspiration coursing deep,

as one, the crowd shouts,

 

“Encore.”
