The act and the play are a way of life
I’ve been kissing you while I’ve been fighting
The walk like the talk is rugged that way
The opening curtain unveils my curves
The slight skewing of interpretation
You twist what I do with my words
I rely on your judgment
To let you feel
But don’t judge too harshly
My feelings are also real
Judge enough that you can take what you need
And leave the rest in my space just for me
I rely on your laughter
Like my two-edged blade
You are my first audience
Witnessing my before and after
This is the place
Where my loves and losses
First make their entrance
And last make their exits
You are my first audience
Watching the premiere of my life
Under your eyes I shift with the tides
