After my shows, I still come out in character sometimes. It’s more enjoyable for all of us 😂 I don’t remember what my characters say so watching the video is a surprise to me too 🤦🏽♀️ Here is a little behind the scenes I wanted to share with you.
blurred lines, and blurred boundaries have led to a blurred allegiance with
romanticising trauma to cope
is like forcing
due to your own peer pressure.
the eyes begin to water
and respond with rejection
but that is the closest you get to
the drunken narrative brings you temporary peace, and temporary relief
as the pain in numbed, but never cured. "it hurts so good" is now written on the welcome mat, inviting the poison into the temple where it now feels at home.
it sits comfortably in your favorite chair.
it lies in your bed, dirtying your sheets.
the lovely fragrance you spray cannot remove the stench from the air. it only mixes in with the scent, masking the smell from what you do not want to face.
i want my temple back,
and i want it clean.
so when pain and pleasure come knocking on the door
i hold s p a c e for one,
and ask the other
to come visit
in my dreams.
