The Blood and Veins of an Actress

Sat, 03/22/2014 - 19:40 -- GDelio

Breathe in an ambition,

Breathe out the character.

I am not who I was a second ago.

I'm a new body, a new background,

A different person, but I can relate.

 

The curtain, the stage,

The space I remain.

The glittering spotlights

Lick upon my skin.

Step after step until I reach the center,

That vast ocean of possibility.

 

I don't play the part.

I am the role.

I am exposed.

My heart spills out through the lines.

 

My passion,

My childhood,

My safety,

My atmosphere.
