Their love was like a shallow grave,
Between theatrical and staged,
Like actors in a soap opera,
Perfectly in-tune,
Not a wrong word spilled,
Not a hair out of place,

Behind the scenes,
Their dedication ceased,
The velvet curtains concealed,
Alone; Their hatred unfolded,
Draped across the rug,
Spilt down their flawless faces,
Their lies unravelled,
Their true colours shone,
A lifetime performance,
A feat,
In the limelight, visible on the outside,
Hidden within, fake and fame.
