Post performance blue

30 Jun

 

It is over.

The noisy applause has stopped ringing in my ears.

The congratuations, the handshakes, the patted shoulders, the compliments, the hugs, the kisses.

The kindness, the warmth.

The heat of the spotlight, so hot on my skin yesterday, is now cold.

We have taken our final bows. The curtain has closed.

The adrenalin has worn off. The high has evaporated.

It has left me low.

I can still almost feel our last embraces.

I miss you. And you.

And especially you.

It was special.

It is over.

    This is heart wrenching… We’ve all felt this in one way or another… Brings back such memories of pain and loss. Longing…. Thank you for this. I love how you always expose your heart to us all. From across the ocean I feel you. 💖

    Did you love (doing) it while it lasted? Will you do it again?
