Curtain Call June 23, 2007

     Title: Curtain Call
     On went her make-up
     On went his mask
     On went their costumes
     And all so fast
     It was time for his show
     Time for her debut
     They thought they looked perfect
     And soon you would too
     The lights went down
     Silence filled the air
     Curtains went up
     Move, you wouldn’t dare
     Careful he had to be
     He didn’t want to fall
     One little slip
     And he could lose it all
     Balance she had to
     Or she could trip
     The cost would be great
     If she only lost her grip
     The drama so intense
     Very well he played his part
     The song she chose was beautiful
     She danced her way into your heart
     Tired she was becoming
     Testing her own endurance
     But quit, she would not
     Til the end of her performance
     It was almost over
     Your rejection he feared
     The curtains closed
     The audience cheered
     “Bravo!” you shouted
     They took a bow
     Behind the scene, their costumes are off
     What would you think, if you saw them now
     They’re two different people
     Living separate lives
     In two different worlds
     But both living in lies
     Each time in public
     A performance they give
     And all to hide
     The lies that they live
     Because they’re covered in sin
     And feel they can’t win
     So instead they choose to lie
     As their soul slowly dies
