THE GREAT PRETENDER
The actor pretends.
Keeps track of his lips.
In a fit of blind rage,
can't find a way to sit.
The verb is on point.
The movement in tune.
Superb & conjoined,
The actor seems true.
The role that is played
Seems to carry over,
Arranging this stage for...
The eye of the beholder
Where true life begins
And actors acts end
Is still to be deciphered
When We All Pretend
Splendidly performed shenanigans from sesquipedalian orators...
You create the paradox, the void that can destroy the screen, pen and paper
Swept away by the banes of life, existence, lies and facades that cry
Internal stagnation results in corollary within the interstices collapsing
Recalcitrant to ones self, ignoring the inner core, negating liminal sustainability
PROfusion exceeds the outer limit, as the thespian in question loses all tranquillity
The dichotomy of a mind who pretends eventually will stumble, crumble and fade
Become the bench warming back burner when one of higher caliber comes to take your place
Yet when juxtaposing and setting them side by side they seem to blend together
Collectively conjoined where do you cut to sever, defining which ones better?
I seek perspicuous text, jargon, lexicon or whatever will explain which face is on
Cause now I'm just lost in all production costs
Masquerade of masks in shame with altered names and grandiose claims
Nomological disorder with reality thrown to the wayside then continue on non sequitur
Uncalculated haughty disdain exceeds supercilious mindset you'd like to frame
But cant and never will for you've become too fragile from the venues of fake kisses and fur.....

Always happy to meet someone who eschews obfuscation. I enjoyed this piece very much, had to work a bit to sort it out due to the lack of division into stanzas but it was worth it!1 point poeticrift wrote 403 days ago (neutral)0i need a dictionary for your poems lol,
