I laugh on a stage

in a place

in a town

where no one knows me.


I smile

as the cloud closes in

I can’t breathe anymore.


And the crowd stayed predictable…

They lifted me on their shoulders

and called me marvelous

And I was.


I was a marvelous liar.

So many tears,

Shed along that day.

so many fears,

That will always stay.

Though looking out,

With a smiling face,

I need to shout.

Where joy should be,

There is only doubt.
