She sits, waiting,
The tension, suffocating.
Her heart palpitating,
The moment, nauseating.
Long time since I've done one of these, hope you're all excited! Let's see if you're all still up for the task :)

For those new to this, the idea is that people can add their own stanzas to the existing opening stanza. The full poem with everyone's contributions will be added to a journal entry, which can be found here:

If you wish to take part, just add your contributions in the comments section below. There are no 'right or wrong answers' and all contributions are welcome!

So go crazy, have some fun with it and I look forward to reading your work!

NB: Contributions are also welcome on previous collaborative poems!

her eyes,concealing
the fear , leaving
the excitement, revealing

Thanks so much for your contribution!

Her parents, fretting,
The crowd, murmuring.
The stagelights burning,
The curtain, opening.

Mine's not very original, but that's what came to mind. ^^;
