In between

Anna-in-Between-850x460

There you are front and center

Staring at me from the screen

I’m alone – no socialite

Oh and yeah, and it is Friday night

 

Looks like you’re having fun

New girls on your arms

Where’s your wife, center of your life?

It’s all part of the gig, man

 

There you are on the side

You can’t see me from where I stand

Is there a line in between

The show and what you really mean?

 

Sometimes things are not

What they seem

But the feelings hold their meaning

All the same

  1. Loved the paradox in the last verse, seemed sad at first reading but there is a context of strength in the story too.
    Love the line, ‘But the feelings hold their meaning’
