‘Scuse my silence, I’m just
Over here dealin’
With a little heartbreak
Nothing that’ll kill me
But enough to knock
The words from my mouth
And the sonnets from my sight
Keep writing what I think
Happened, knowing it wasn’t
Like that, not entirely
Got a lot to say but
Nowhere to put it; the
Ninth act deleted
Before it began
Curtains drawn, no
Final bows allowed
I fear now, all along my
Interpretation was off
Making more plot than
The playwright conceived
My performance gaudy
Overdrawn and naught
But bothersome to
Other players, time wasting
And over-sharing barging
Through unwritten scenes
Now sitting in the wings, the
Show’s over, the run’s complete
Time to repaint the backdrops
And move on then, is it?
Hard to forget, don’t really want to
Greasepaint and glitter stubbornly
Linger, a constant reminder
Ever fainter, of shows past
Perhaps never to play again
Svasti — Feel better. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, please. 🙂
Hey, Svasti –
My thoughts are with you . . whatever is happening with you . . .
– Marie (Coming Out of the Trees)
All the world’s a stage and we make our own reality from the flickering shadows and glaring lights of existence.
Now go outside and paint me a sunrise
Then take me by the hand and show me
It is not a thunderstorm.
ps: I’ve left a reply to your comment on Happiness 4 in “Reflections” I’d like you to read it.
Svasti my dear friend–what can I say? I loved this poem! It really spoke to the actor that still lives inside of me. Wonderful!
Svasti, your poem is beautiful, and now you have a hand bound book to write and save your poetry in! You are the inner of my give away 🙂 PLease email me with info for sending it your way!!
I’m really happy to know it will be with you,
@Blisschick – Thank you, I’m getting there!
@mmaaggnnaa – Much appreciated. A little down time was what I needed 🙂
@soulMerlin – Nice poem, and I’m very pleased for you in your recent progress 🙂
@Melinda – Glad you enjoyed it! Me too, don’t worry. I don’t think that ‘performance gene’ ever goes away…
@Karin – YAY!!!! Wow, I’m so happy and honoured to have won that magical little book. 😀
