“Behind the Scenes” Poem of the Day (2023)

“Behind the Scenes”

By Ashley O’Hare

Who are you in the dark?

Without the stage lights

to wash out your flaws,

do you embrace imperfect anonymity?

Do you cry of self pity?

Do you count the seconds you spend lonely?

Do you recharge your social battery?

When nobody is looking

do you keep up the act?

Do you stay in character?

Does it get tiring

never letting the truth

see the light of day?

I’m sure the real you

is in dire need

of some Vitamin D.
