Watch me fall,
lost from this page,
where written was my life.
All the world,
once was my stage,
applause was my reward.
Now but silence,
is my due.
What happenstance,
was this?
How did my talent,
drain away?
Unremembered,
down through time.

Now I stand,
here center stage,
Alone within my world.
Not knowing,
that the curtain call,
was my last adieu.

We all feel that way sometimes Marilyn! Many new people enter and they seem to drown quick! You will never fade from the hearts you touch, NEVER!

There's only two ways you can go...
One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

Marilyn,

Im here to catch you
If you should ever fall.
And as far as I can see
(excellent eye sight)
you are the one to carry
P.A.S.S.I.O.N.POETRY.

The stage is clear and all your`s Mam  
Thank you for sharing
Marilyn  

 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Marilyn, your talents are amazing. I always look forward to reading your rhyming verses, and here you prove that you are equally as talented in free verse. This is an exceptional piece of poetry. I am in awe

Your stage is right here,
has been and will always be.
Can't leave us that easy
we can hold you hostage
in our silly playground.
We can even teach you to dance,
so don't even think about
this being your last call,
we'll all help to not let this fall.

Nice job.

Thankyou all for your kind comments.
Munda..thankyou my friend. I do not intend to go anywhere nor do I intend to stop writing. This was me burning off some frustration in my life. ((HUG))

Gloria....lol..fire you? Never my friend. You always have my best interests at heart. You are a true friend. ((hug))

Wonderful work my sister.  But know you will never fall from the hearts of those who love you, myself included. (HUGS)  Sorry about the other day I got bumped twice, we must finish that conversation!!  

 May the world hug you today,
With it's warmth and love.
I pray it whispers a joyful tune in your heart,
That tell you there is a friend sitting in another corner of the world,
Wishing you well and
wishing you love......
