This is my description of being on stage while dancing. The thrill, the fullfillment, and the fun of dancing.

On the Stage

Waiting patiently,
behind the crimson curtains.
Then I hear my cue.

I walk with style,
my shoes making different sounds.
Drums, making music.

I feel the music,
pulsing through my veins and head.
It swallows me whole.

The song is fading
slowly away, my heart is
thumping in my chest.

I turn to the aud-
ience. Smiling, I take my
bow. My feet are done.

Turning, I exit.
Another performance done.
Can't wait for the next.

  When I read this, it really makes me remember heading out on the stage and performing. I thought that image was very clear and vivid in your poem. One thing though, I think you ended it off too abruptly. I would change the ending. But I really like the poem because it brings back the butterfly feeling in my stomach.

  a little choppy- the rhythm is sort of off at times because in a couple of lines it has 4 or 6 syllables, instead of 5 or 7. But I like the way you make the reader feel like they're up on the stage with you- for the first couple of stanzas, at least. But for the last four verses, you kind of threw me off there- somehow the second part doesnt exactly match with the first half.
