The Big Screen (Poem)
THE BIG SCREEN
There’s something about sitting in the dark
With silent others who don’t notice you’re there;
And getting lost in a story with beautiful scenes
That melt away problems and everyday fear.
The music surrounds and drowns out the pain
And worry that life tends to breed new each day;
While the act of mindlessly eating popcorn
Keeps your emotional hunger at bay.
If the weather is hot, this sanctuary is cool,
When temperatures fall the safe haven warms;
No matter what ravages our lives outside,
Inside these walls we are safe from all storms.
Although it is possible the stories to rent
And watch in a room within our own dwelling;
The experience can never quite be compared
To partaking adventure on screen so overwhelming.
