A Poem By Madeline // 8/3/2015

There was a pinch
I will not lie
When the enormity of the occasion
Felt its way under my skin
I could have let my eyes
Spring open
Succumbing to the oddity
The culmination of this odyssey
The surrealism
Of standing a few hundred feet
From somebody I've professed to
On ink and virtually
And more brazenly
Aloud
But the fingers that
Skimmed my skeleton
Then
Pressed against my tear-ducts
Securing them to a
Dry fate
I did not know relief
Part of me wanted to have the audacity
To fully feel the moment
But the other, detached half
I think
Just wanted to dance
It felt like I was still
Watching
Through a screen

Ah! I love this. Concerts are

Ah! I love this. Concerts are such an amazing experience.
"There was a pinch
I will not lie
When the enormity of the occasion
Felt its way under my skin" that section was so clever.
