Pete's poems from the night.

32,059 poems read

A stage for one.

If no one is to feel as I
Then allow a mind to play
Pretence a game not to lose
But to tidy a sad persona away.

Perfected upon a stage for one
Directed by the dreamy loner
Loss be the spectators attending
Awaiting an incompetent star.

Spotlight burns to expose
A desire for love that weakens
Holding onto delicate threads
Between his fingers softens.

Upon these well trod boards
Hear the last performance
Given to all a swan song
Dying before the audience.

Solitude his friend, helps him
Burdened with a frown and tear
To where a stage is being set
For another long running year.
