Limelight Standing in the limelight, with a lemon that life lent me. Now sipping on lemonade, from a straw that sat between sanguine lips, taking slow and steady sips. Tasting the tasteless tension, that tugs upon tense heart strings. Dreading the dire drama, that demands to be dealt with. Wanting, waiting, and wishing wishes would awaken. But, I go back to standing in the limelight, with a lemon that life lent me. Sipping on lemonade, from a straw that sat between sanguine lips. Taking Slow, and steady sips.
