The Phantom of the Opera

If I were Christine,
I would have chosen The Phantom
His genius, unique beyond comparison
His voice-indescribable
When he sings
It sends chills down my spine
And I close my eyes
And let the magic of his music carry me far away
I would like to believe
That he would have been a great person to know
Had he been a little more friendly
I would like to believe
That he would have given the world such beauty
If given the chance
But even at a young age
He was tortured and tormented
And never once
Given his opportunity to shine
But in my heart
He will always be
Shining brightly
And inspiring the music that grows in me

    So you didn't have any problem living in a cellar then (just kidding!!!)...;). I think this is a great piece...very nicely written and a wonderful tribute to the novel. By the way is PS showing more poems on a page now?? I had 3 pages of poetry but now I see there's only 2!!!
