The Act & The Actress!

‘The Act & The Actress!’

The drapes are drawn
Spot light is now on me
They watch as I stumble
And stutter…
Fool, they criticize,
Got her heart broken,
Oh… How could she be
So stupid, they wonder…

The drapes are drawn
At the center of stage
I stood straight, bold
And brave…
Oh, she is smart, beautiful
They whisper, gave him
What he deserved, they
Applaud with laughter…

Loud noises. Cheers.
Behind my mask, I
Smiles and rejoices…
Oh, they all loved it!
A good entertainment
For them. For me,
It is recognition and life,
The next day meal…
