Actor Lost

 Don’t leave without me,
 This stage a space unbridled,
 Cavernous creations
 Lost in a set of loneliness.
 No props to express
 My lack of words,
 Forgotten lines,
 Only the sad eyes you left me with
 And my false personas.
 The dividing line between life and illusion,
 Whose mantelpiece holds the awards.
 Is this real,
 Or false?
 I’ll know if no one shouts cut.

  1. Great work again, Richard — but couldn’t help but notice: ” whose mantelpiece… ” – hope you don’t mind the input… all from the heart of me… – G’day, Emma πŸ™‚
