Acting and Playing

I'm like why.
Are we seriously going to play this game?
Act like everything is alright?
Act like everything is okay?
Act like everything in the past didn't happen?
Act...
I can't act anymore.
My grand performance is over,
My spot light has been cut off.
I'm so sick of this game.
My last turn has been take,
I rolled the dice for the last time,
I placed my last card down.
What can't you understand about this?
Have I not made myself clear?
Can't you just leave me alone?
Haven't you already done enough to me?
I can't act anymore,
I can't play this game anymore,
I don't have it in me to.

I love your poem. The whole concept of a "game" has always intrigued me! You portray it so nicely well done!
