Band-Aids

Inspired by the intoxication of a live performance

Taking a rocky joy ride on the wild side of life

Touring distant lands with the band

 

All night love binges and

Sharp syringes punching

Holes in our arms

 

We're here for a carefree good time,

Living the life most people

Strive to dream of now and then

 

The buzz is worth the fuzz on

Our clothes and the strikes against

Our reputations

Seeing the world through new filters

Stimulates our imaginations

 

Feeling the live music on stage

Night after night deep in our bones,

Takes us to a euphoric zone that

Few will ever capture on a recording

 

It's too steep for most people

To creep up to this pinnacle

Of the mountain, just for a

Single view of what we are

Blessed to see every day

 

We're not groupies,

We're not wives or girlfriends,

We're band-aids

Wow Marie. This is compelling reading.

I love your meaning behind the phrase "Band-Aids"!
And it was descriptive too!

I never did the hole punching thing in my arms,
But boy I had a most amazing life when I was a teen.
I am so glad those days are over, I don't think I could
ever relive my past. Like your write, Amazing job!
