Poems From The Past

The Actress
May 19th, 2003

I have lived in a world of shadows
beyond my comprehension
A world of illusions
like many props painted
bright unnatural colors
set up on stage
for all the world to see
my Cirque du Soleil
but i have carefully masked the soul part
this has not actually been a play of the soul
but of the shadow
what looked to be a harmless comedy
to the actress
was played out
as a tragedy
to the audience
forgetting her lines
falling down
weeping on stage
for all the world to see
