ONE NIGHT ONLY

Dense and thick

Reaching out

The scarlet material blankets me

Heavy

A reflection of myself

My soul weighted down

Dragging and scrapping

At one time clawing, but no more

Long ago I would scream

Only my echo for company

So long it’s been dark

My only friend

My only companion

Always a one man show

No players in this game

A puppet on strings

Bending for the masses

Entertaining

A spectacle

Soon the curtain will rise

The lights come up

For one night only

My performance will start again

  1. Such an amazing and poignant piece. I particularly love the lines
    “A puppet on strings
    Bending for the masses
    Entertaining
    A spectacle”

    You have captured the very essence of what, sadly, so many others feel. I applaud you!
