Spin me quickly
Twirl me fast
Don't stop me now
Please let me feel the rush
Let me feel the power
Lift me
Hold me in the air
Let me be someone I'm not
The graceful dancer
A pretty face with no life story
Raise me higher
With more force
I need to feel something
Although I'm not sure what it is
Turn me 'round
Dip me lower
Help me be escape this reality
Make me the girl
Just the girl who loves to dance
Just a girl that has no past
Just a singer with no worries
Help me fly
To lose myself
So lift me
Spin me
Dip me
Twirl me
Turn me
Give me a chance
Just to be that nameless face
Who entertains them all

I've read all your work, and I like how you have variety.

I really enjoy your writing, poems and short stories.

Keep at it, and write more love stories, because that one, "Hold onto Me" yeah, it's one of my favorites and I think if you wrote more, you could get it published.

And also, this poem is very insporational and I am in love with it!

This is one of my very favorites. It captures exactly how I would imagine a number of performers feel.
