And it all falls apart

And it all falls apart

A Poem by Anastasia
"

I just finished the musical at my school, and I'm really sad because it was an absolutely amazing experience for me and I love the cast and crew so much. It's kind of just my brain exploded a little.

"

I miss everyone,

Everything

Everyone’s smiling face,

All the inside jokes,

Nap piles in the wings of the stage trying to calm down our nerves,

Interpretive dances with the crew to “How do you solve a problem like Maria?”

Getting mic taped ripped of my skin leaving raw red marks,

The nervous energy backstage and in our dressing rooms,

“Inspirational” Speeches,

Crying before curtain call,


I miss the feeling of time stopping,

From the moment I step onstage to the moment I step off.

The feeling of only the story mattering,

No more modern day problems,

No more modern day politics,

No more fear of judgement,


For when the spotlight is shining so brightly in your face and your belting your heart out-

Nothing matters.

The sound of the thundering applause from the audience as you walk out to take your final bow,

It drowns out the rude judgemental thoughts your peers say about the show,

Or you,

Or your friends


Running offstage in tears of sadness as this is your last show,

Hugging your stage husband,

Hugging your crying stage children,

The stage family you created who really could be your family now.

The seven children you’ve come to love so much


But now-

You’ll never hearing the whistle to tell you Mark is trying to find you.

No more leandlers with Ralph,

No more marching around while singing about deer or jam and bread.

No more carrying Sasha around backstage,

No more kisses in the wings with Elliot,

No more twerk circles with Lillian, Mabel and Josie.


But I’ll get over it,

Just like Oliver, and Annie,

I survived,

And the family we formed-drifted apart.

This was a poem that I kind of just threw up mentally on spot, it is not at all polished.

This reminds me the last day at my school.....everyday we used to get angry that when will the bell be ringing and we'll leave for home...but at the last day...time was like running fast as if in a race!!
Eyes full of tears....Clutched the best friend tight on whom I used to get irritated for calling me in exam hall for help......
We want success and old days nurture us for that!
These memory pieces are beyond costly...hold them close!

TS might not be Frost or Eliot but combined with Nix they made music. Perhaps another colab?...

The bonds we create with others that deeply touches our hearts will never disappear but help form us into the people we are today- all part of the journey opening up our emotions allowing us to choose what it is that we want or don’t- wonderful to have experienced things like this and to feel so deep- so happy that you had such a wonderful experience that made you happy and connect with special people - a true blessing to feel so deep- um sure the play was amazing and will remain in your heart forevermore🌹

All of us learn. School wasn't so bad. Friends close and we were always busy. Real life teaches us. Few friend we keep and work is life. I liked the truth in the words. Best days of life. The days of school and learning. Thank you Anastasia for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.
