The Actor

empty stares
confused adoration
stifling screams
they applaud-
i take a bow
the show is over
curtains drop
today's tale has ended.

Beyond the curtains
i hear fading screams-
i place my hands tightly
against my ears-
drag my body on my elbows
and cry out
"Lord let them go away please".

Time collects in one place
my soul stifles a scream
all this pain,
all these broken moments
become a reality,
am betrayed by my own silence.

And now
With my teeth,i
pick up pieces of me-
piece by piece
part by part.
a new day will unfold,
I will play a new role.

To the activist,Lulu ,angel, Emi ,shishi n K

I have socks!

I really like the writing and the way you captivate the reader.

This is nice like a 10/5

" tomorrow i will play a new role"

It's funny, this is actually true about some actors. Everyday they manage to put on a new face before the audience but who are they really behind the mask?

You display pure talent. Love this piece, keep utilising your poetic licence!

u never seem to stop to blow my mind away with ur words

Princess said...

Ai! but we are all actors.
This one's deep, Robyn. I like. :)

K said...

Robyn darling I thought we had a send out the bat signal when you have updated...I come and claim socks! lol. i'm good dear, hope you are fine...ok on to serious matters..

I'm in love with your mind and words are just so diverse with your topics. I even wonder where your inspiration comes from

I love the last stanza. You made me think of how actors have to shed parts of themselves every time they act and then when they are done we forget that they have to pick up those part of themselves but we the audience always leave adding the acting to who they are...

Ah man you make me want to go back to high school and study english literature all over again! Thanks for the poetic xxx

Jaycee said...

When you said to the Activist, I figured that though your message speaks about silence, it is silently applauding those who speak out.

Loved it! Nice.

Angel said...

Hey Robyn

WOW was that for me? Thank you for writing it. You are a great blog friend. Talk about making my day!

Its true, Actors spend their whole life being somebody else, I think sometimes they can forget to be themselves.

Robyn - I enjoy every second of your words that slink across my screen and enchant me

Mudamuli said...

At a point in my life I actually studied theatre. One of the most difficult things for actors to do is to get in and out of character as often as they did some of them actually carry on like the character they had spend so much time learning to be. Sadly the rest of us don't help by constantly assuming they are who they are on stage.
and great piece robyn, we still getting married?

Jackie E. said...

You have a way with words Mr. Robyn...

You have captured the face behind the mask here Robyn. That you use such an intricate simplicity is stunning as the impact reaches home.

It is a wonderful and very powerful bit of writing.
