Charades

Sweat drops from his brow,

as the nervousness kicks in.

What if all these people find out that it’s not really him?

The guy they see on t.v.,

the one so handsome and strong,

he’s really just a shy man who’s been depressed forever long.

But he can’t his show weakness,

he can’t let them know.

So when he’s out of the public eye he lets it all go.

Crying, weeping, tears of pain,

his emotions running on high.

He wonders how long he must go on living this horrible lie.

The lights cut off,

the cameras leave.

He can finally return to the man he once was, the one he can never be.
