I'm like why.
Are we seriously going to play this game?
Act like everything is alright?
Act like everything is okay?
Act like everything in the past didn't happen?
I can't act anymore.
My grand performance is over,
My spot light has been cut off.
I'm so sick of this game.
My last turn has been take,
I rolled the dice for the last time,
I placed my last card down.
What can't you understand about this?
Have I not made myself clear?
Can't you just leave me alone?
Haven't you already done enough to me?
I can't act anymore,
I can't play this game anymore,
I don't have it in me to.

"...If the Thames that ran beside them...recalled a night where the moon shone as brightly as a shilling on the same boy and girl... and thought to themselves, 'at last, the wheel comes full circle,' they kept their silence."

I love your poem. The whole concept of a "game" has always intrigued me! You portray it so nicely well done!

You all laugh because I'm different,
I laugh because you're all the same.
