46 – Performers Are People Too

I like to see you pretend
On screen not as yourself
But I can’t forget it’s acting
Because you look like
You’re trying to be mad
I’ve made you that mad
And a glint in your eye
Doesn’t look as mad
As you did that one time…
It’s only a small giveaway
Revealing that you’re really you
Under the fake sweat and tears
