About Me

I'm a Recovering Drama Queen. I got tired of the same old lines.

The Comedian

This is an old piece that I recently came across.

When I'm high on depression
And bursting with rage
I've got this face of happy,
That makes love to the stage.

You like it,
But it's deceiving.
I fear it,
These thoughts I'm conceiving.

I'll play it out for you,
This maddening dance.
You'll clap and you'll laugh
At my circumstance.

I bow and step down
And become me again,
But all you'll ever really know
Is the comedian.

On another note, as some of you know, I was blogging at a different site last year. It just didn't feel like "me". I'm back to writing on this blog.


  1. YEAH!! I like you better here. :)

  2. I'm glad you're here. It makes me happy.


  3. Thanks Juli and Janie. It's good to be back!

  4. Dear Stephanie, I'm glad to see you back here. I've missed you. As to the poem, I think we all wear masks at times as the ancient Greeks used to do when they presented plays. The important thing, I think, is knowing that we are, for whatever reason, wearing a mask with this or that person or in this or that situation. Peace.
