Act’s Up!

Act’s Up

When the curtains close

Your behind closed doors

The happiness simmers

The smile fades

The fame gone

The fake love disappears

No one around

Your quiet

You stare and wonder

What is it all for?

Is it just the act in me?

Can they not see the real me?

On stage its all love

All happiness

Roses and candies

balloons and confetti

The act keeps them near

When curtains close

Where are they?

Why, I fear?

Aloneness

Staring in the mirror

Cannot pretend with myself

With none

Behind that curtain

Who am I?

An act, a person…….

Thank you for reading.
