Sad in Musicals

I decided to write a poem about another emotion in musicals.


Sad in Musicals:

One that ranges in many ways

Barely there to really there

Barely there can refer to a “faint edge”

That section can easily be forgotten

Or even over shadowed

Strong enough when always there

Loved the most when moderate

That is when sad is loved


Ranges all the way to heartbreak

But once there range starts again

That one goes from mild to extreme

Mild so boring in that area

Where sad most likely is

But once moderate more emotion

Just a more devastating form of sad

One that feels like being hit by a pile of bricks

That causes goosebumps and tears

One with multiple emotions

But not all the time

I am a strong spiritual person who is a big fan of musicals. This blog mainly is about musicals. Every so often I talk about spirituality. Sometimes I add in movie reviews, book reviews, and about my life in general. I hope you find my blog inspiring.

  1. I love this! Sadness in musicals has gradually become one of my favorite emotions that a musical displays because I think that musicals have a great capability for writing sad emotions through the songs.


    1. I started to understand that emotion back in middle school and it is amazing how much it has changed. This one really shows that sad is not always in the form of heartbreak and that sometimes it is barely there


      1. It really is. I think that it’s awesome how musicals really have that great ability to showcase emotion.


      2. Sad is the most boring when it is quite mild. But I love it the most when it starts at the moderate stage: that is not at the heartbreaking stage, but strong enough. It is hard to describe at what point heartbreak fits into the equation.


      3. Yeah, it’s weird (and yet super awesome) to be able to gauge all of these emotions based off the intensity of the emotion in a song. Heartbreak and more moderate levels of sadness have gradually become some of my favorite emotions displayed in musical theatre.
