sing – a poem

I sang in public yesterday

the music couldn’t keep spilling out

from my

heart

in the restaurant

in the restroom

down the main street

two strangers stopped me and said

“you have a great voice, please keep singing”

and I thought that was significant for the

first day

of the new year

Maybe this is the year I finally

share my voice.

I sang in the car on the ride home

and I was filled with ecstasy

I swear I had an orgasm after singing

Natalie Weiss’ version of “Only Hope”

tears spilled from the depths of my soul

and my boyfriend looked at me like I was

crazy

but I know what I felt.

I finally felt

free.

I

Let

Go.
