And standing on a darkened stage. Stumbling through the lines

Others have excuses,  But I have my reasons why

Nickel creek




She is reading from the script

as I read from mine

(her words are bright yellow )


This is another rehearsal 

the third run through, so we know when to pause

know when to hold hands and just breathe  


She is counting to five,

but not out loud,

waiting for the right time to move on


I am not paying attention 

forgetting my place

simply gazing into her soft brown eyes


Someone off stage yells                                            LINE
