Another day, another show,
Put on the mask, do another bow,
Fake a smile and wipe your tears,
Is time to play again the role.

When it comes to an end,
You are gonna find out it was just pretend,
No, it wasn't how they said,
They never really cared.

It was all your fault,
They've been just following the script,
You've been too involved,
Opened wide your heart,
Let them see what you've got inside.
But they tore it apart, they stabbed it,
Left you bleeding close to death.

Try to get up, try to erase your mind, breathe deep inside,
You say you'll start it all over, change youself forever,
But somewhere, the real you,
Hides far away from here,
Waiting to come back, for a new start.

Are you really inside cold as ice?
Are you really sick of these lies?
But take a look around, you do the same,
Now you are the one to blame,
Pretending to be something that you've never been…

This life is a show,
For you, for me, even for them all,
You can never know what are they hiding,
Like you do,
Their darkest fears, painfull memories…

The performance is over, the curtains go down,
Throw away the mask, this time nobody won.
Say goodbye to everyone, even if they don't care,
Close your eyes, pull the trigger,
End up the nightmare…
Tell me your oppinions ^^

My opinion is, good use of words and ideas. Also my opinion is that We are the ones who creates the nightmare(s) and We can end it but not with a trigger, but smoothly, with a paper and a pencil :aww:

Thank you for sharing :pray:

Thank you. I ended like that because I wanted to add more drama :D But in reality, I would never give up like that. There's always a way out :aww:

this is exactly what I am painting about right now! would you mind if I referenced this work to inform my paintings further? and if I did, could I have your name to give you proper attributions?
(I'm in college so just referencing your work without your permission would be straight up plagarism:XD:)

the poem, by the way, is really lyrical! i love it! the imagery is really great!
