I hate being that girl that can't talk in a big crowd,
all eyes watching,
with out the flush of red on the face.

Thoughts get stuck in head.
Shy takes over.
Nothing to be embarrassed about, yet warm falls on face as blood rushes.

Heart beats fast. faster.
Nerves take over.
Shake. Sweat.
Talking stops. Then words, they stay in mouth.

Flush finally goes away. Silence from my lips is all that's left.

linking up:


  1. I used to have ridiculously huge stage fright. I still vividly remember one piano competition where I had to introduce what I was going to play and talk about it in some technical detail. I got up to the mike...and blanked. Just stood there and blanked, for about 20 seconds that felt like 20 minutes, before it came back to me, I said it all in a rush and sat down to play where I could look at the keys and not the faces.

    And then, I became a teacher. And I discovered the cure for stage fright is practice. Get up and do it a few times, and then it becomes old hat. I still get nervous sometimes, especially in front of a new class or a new group. But it's much easier now.

  2. This is gorgeous. And I've think we've all been there. Just know you are good with words....many people just can't make the words work on their blog, but you do.


I am so happy you are here. Your words make my heart so happy.
