Exit. Stage Right… Into Oblivion

The lights are glaring and the crowd is cheering,
My performance is successful, seemingly endearing,
The positive affirmation surrounds me leaving the stage,
But as I fade to black it’s back on to a sad, lonely page,
There are no plaudits in the night siting there completely alone,
No one to scheme with, no capers to craft, a silent deafening tone,
In the quiet I hear the kind words reverberate in my head,
I ask puzzlingly why I am not heartened but miserable instead,
I know the answer but don’t feel good facing the truth,
But the isolation and loneliness is devastating, definitive proof,
It’s nice people appreciate my mind and talent, they do truly care.
But the saddest tears are shed when I realize again, no one is there.
