Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets

28. The Show Must Go On

You are like a theater

to which people flock

to witness your

complexity

profundity

vibrancy.

You are hilarious, a comedy,

but then the scenery changes,

and you become

 serious

 sensitive

thoughtful.

You are a stage, a blank slate

to which people run to escape,

and you help them

relax

forget

carry on.

You are a set, a façade,

which hides the real you,

and instead projects

happiness

confidence

bravado.

You are backstage as well,

a mess of darkened chaos,

the curtains hiding your

insecurities

sensitivity

fear.

You are an selfless actor,

ignoring what you feel inside,

to instead don the 

makeup

costume

mask.

You raise the lights,

you feign a smile,

because the show 

must 

go 

on.
