Hearing voices unheard, seeing people unseen — all reality absurd;
Thinking one thousand racing thoughts, bracing for the next fall
While chasing the insanity facing her, and she doesn’t even know
Just how the show goes, but she is front and center stage
At such a ripe, young age, turning the page and another
As an invisible audience applauds as she reads her lines so fine,
Yet no one around her is bound to understand the hand fate dealt
Nor the pain it causes her especially when she pauses in a moment
Of silent lucidity when for a moment there is no more absurdity —
Ah, but she is, perhaps, happier in hysterical laughter ever after
Some joke she shares only with herself than most people living
In banality of reality, taking the days and common ways of man
