~Red Curtains~

Behind red curtains I hide

Heart is on fire
burning in my chest

Scarred of what's beyond

People can be so cruel

Up it goes
I am fully exposed

I hold my breath
I let go

Sea of faces
plastic smiles


Cold eyes
stare at me

Waiting for my performance
so they may judge

the courage arrives

Not holding back
I give my all

And then my prize
no applause

Your not good enough
they say

Who are you
you don't even know my first name

Your arrows do not hurt nor
your words cut

I liked it better
when I didn't have this part

I'm no good at carrying on an act

Behind the red curtain
I go back

Behind the red curtain
no one hides nor acts
