In Your Opalescence
I see you up there on that stage
You glow,your eyes bold
I sit somewhere back,in the shadows
In a daze
Wondering if it is appropriate
To start the applause.
I see you take a bow with the cast
I want to go up to congratulate you
But you're surrounded by friends and the crew
I am ashamed of my cowardice
Because I turn back and I decide
To turn back and change my mind
My moment has passed.
I marvel at how calm you look
Your enrapturing smile
Is something divine
I'd thought it was reserved just for me
For our secret get away time
In hushed giggles in our stairway nook.
But I guess you're just too good at performing
That I thought in you
I found my sense of belonging.
I put myself in your place once
Instantly my heart raced and my hands shook
How liberating it must be
To live a life without censor
No fear of any blunder
Not having to think a dozen of times
Before raising your voice your mind
With daunting eloquence
No wonder you look heavenly
In your opalescence
