Post performance blue


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.
