The sky waves in its colourful intensity
I struggle to intensify the thoughts in my head
to write them like they used to before
to get my mind talking to my fingers

The lies that used to come so easily
now hide behind the truth of incapability
Memorable performances for the crowd is a rarity
as the stage disseminates right in front of me

The red curtain flows only to close now
It never tries to showcase a virtuoso on its own now
I try and try to fail in hopes of succeeding one day
as hope arrives in a form of a mirage
and I wait…
