I have everything I need, but everyone is starting at me.

My knees are weak
Shaking
As my body
Stands still
My hand
Became sweaty
Shaking
Nervously

My mouth moves
But no words
Have been heard
I am in the spotlight
Facing a delicate
Silence
Crowd

I couldn’t speak
My mouth is stitch shut
I couldn’t cut the hard wires
My body is shaking too much

My mind is scrambled
The pieces are missing
The information is there
Yet I couldn’t see
I’m blinded by
The
Dazzling
Light

It’s a tight room
I feel so small
The room is growing
Rapidly large

There so many eyes
Glaring at me
Some were excited
Some were bored
Becoming impatient
Start the show!

I’m the center
Part of the show
I have everything on script
Yet I am muted
When the lights looks down on me

A nice recounting of that moment when you find all eyes turned towards yourself.
