the actress

i am
a sweet breeze singing,
wind chimes swinging,
and every beautiful
end to a day.

i am
rivers rushing,
sunlight sweeping,
and every kind thing
you could say.

i am
loved and loving,
cared for, caring;
glad as any bird
in a cage.

cold as a gale blows
through my bones;
happy. in every
possible way.

proper, polished,
always honest,
perfect, pleasing,
on display.

almost always
almost cracking--
no. i do not lose
today.

i am,

(i must be)

a sweet breeze singing,
windchimes swinging,
rivers rushing,
sunlight sweeping,
loved and loving,
cared for, caring;

...not my game,
but i must play.
