I Miss…

I miss acting. Theater. Theatre. Performing.

I miss figuring a character out, getting inside her head. Putting the puzzle pieces together to construct the perfect presentation of a fake person.

I miss becoming other people. I miss the drama, the energy, and the fun.

I miss highlighting my lines, and memorizing them to a T.

I miss playing with dialects, accents, and word choices.

I miss creating a person, and the having the pleasure of becoming that person.

Will I ever do this again? I’m not sure.

I dream of it. Yearn. Long to perform and entertain.

As my body grows older, my spirit grows restless, straining more against the confines of normalcy.

I miss me.
