• The Gig Is Up

    The gig is up.
    My act is done.
    I tried so hard to pretend,
    but now it's time to bring it to an end.

    The smile I wear is only a lie,
    to bring your attention away from the tears I cry.
    I'm lost and can't be found.
    Darkness engulfs me and I can no longer try not to give in.

    Someone tell me I'm dreaming.
    My act is so good,
    I got you all fooled.

    None of you know the real me,
    I'm starting to break.
    The world is a blur. . .

    I can only be strong for so long.
    The gig is up.
    My act is done.
    Nothing else to do but try and run.
