Behind The Curtain – Written Monday 22nd October 2007 (Aged 32)

Behind The Curtain

you tell me that you are certain
your madness,
lives with you behind the curtain
waiting for the opening night
when you dance,
and finally shine bright
but why take a chance
when it is easy to do nothing
and live with the
-lines in the middle of the road
afraid to be something
you tell me,
that you are certain,
that your homemade diagnosis –
will come to fruition
that i have a certain condition
well step from behind the condition
and say it to my face
step onto the stage
and face the light so bright
then, when you have,
tell me all about life
