Dreams of a Wannabe Singer

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #394 I'm With the Band

"We all have music in us! In some respects, we are our own best instrument. Maybe you play one well or not so much, or maybe you’d like to play one. Either way, you’re with the band. Here’s your chance for a solo! Even if you only sing. Write your instrument and fill our hearts with your music." 

Never wanted to say
'I'm with the band'.
No.  I desired to be
the fired-up singer
with a voice 
that stimulated emotion
from soothing, to 
heartbeats of rocking
joy, to tears of
recognition.  Alas,
cannot sing a note.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
