Spotlight- Poem (Light, Camera, Action)
What are you playing at pretending you are alright,
telling lies, putting on a smile to make it seem things are fine?
The make up cover the flaws, you are right.
Others fall for the fake smile but I stand!
I stand upright observing the cracks in your foundation.
You post uplifting status but your head is down,
You tweet like you are 'saved' but deep down you are lost.
You act like life is perfect but I see through you, secretly praying for the pain to go away.
These things make me want to ask who you really are.
Who are you behind the spotlight,
without the fitted clothes,
makeup, and heels that makes you tall?
Who are you without your virtual friends,
behind your close friends,
your family and everyone you can't live without?
Who are you when the music goes off,
when you get sober from the alcohol,
when the curtains are drawn, and when the light goes off?
Who are YOU behind the spotlight?
