The Fifty Cent Tour

bare


this is where the scenery fades
the fabric falls away
the adornments drop, unclasped
the paint runs down the sink

this is where real life
drowns out the music,
upstages the acting,
thunders over the applause

this is where the pretending stops
where the lighting 
dares you to get comfortable
and the kidgloves come off

yet this place is a safe place
for revealing scars
for smoothing calluses
and mending hearts and fences

this house 
is your home
this life
is your castle
dwell in it richly

Rene ~ 2010

    "where the lighting
    dares you to get comfortable"

  4. I feel at home with this.

    We should go to your fridge and see if you have any of that wine left...
