Answer Girl - Poem by chelle santos

you are the game show host asking for my final answer.
with a million at stake, i hear only beeping getting faster.
cameras zoom in, as you clutch your mic & hold your breath.
just before the buzzer sounds, i open my mouth & say yes.
i exhale & you exhale. you already know i am right.
you just had to hear me say it before the end of the night.

    This is probably a metaphor, for love and yearning and that one moment of 'yes'...but it totally made me smile and think of Regis...great form by the way. (Report)Reply
