Actress (As Darkness Fades to Light)

37 0 0

If all the world really is a stage,

then I am its best actress.

By day I put on my façade,

at night, lie on my mattress

and think of everything I’ve done

that cannot be reversed.

I lie there past the hour of one

believing my life is cursed.

I lie there crying silently,

tears rushing down my face,

knowing deep inside of me

I’m easy to replace.

Then slowly, as the sun appears

and darkness fades to light,

love begins to dry my tears

and again, I’m ready to fight.
