Circus – Written Monday 13th December 2010 (Aged 35)


i step back –
and leave the circus
having gone through –
my various acts
there seems –
to be little reason –
to come back
i have danced
and walked the tightrope
i have played –
with the mirrors
i have been blinded –
by smoke
now i am leaving the circus
it is time for me to elope
