So good at the act that you forget what's true.
So good at pretending that the unreal becomes real.
What you feel is under your control.

You can ignore your feelings.
You can act forever.
Yet at some point, the inevitable curtain comes down, and the performance ends.
You are left with you; and the feelings you're pretending aren't there.
If only for a moment. ...
