Theatre is such freedom and a change from the regular self consciousness of me

Make - Believe

A character born from the words on the page
Absorbed into me, words released from their cage
Once spoken from the voice, the one that rings true
The connection is made, imagination shines through
Embrace the character you see, in your mind’s eye
Develop and make your own, as the weeks pass by
Taking centre stage, as one, but with parts of many
Character ghosts of my past, all wanting to be free
Therapeutic, full of glee, relief from conscious me
The real is submerged to make way for make- believe

    This is cool, amazing when you think that before we created these characters they never existed. We breath life into them and send them out into the world.

    Shaz, I loved this poem. I'm not pushing my poetry, but this eerily reminded me of one I wrote some time ago. Check "Waiting In The Wings." I appreciate your commenting on my work. .... Jake

    Personalizing life is what makes our potential a reality - make believe to make real - good rythem Shaz - I like the message that we are responsible for extending, or creating life through the instrument of our imaginations - J.A.B. %

    I started reading, I got submerged into the lines that I didn't wanna stop. I wish it had continued. Cheers!
