!!! Hollow Shrine !!!

I think back of the time, when we were the only ones
Showcasing our talent that world couldn't understand
The Audiences were awed by our characters
Some connected, others cheered, rest only sneered

For our play was never ever played before
We indulged our roles perfectly with each other
The stage was set, lighting was right
Decoration bloomed and two characters sufficed

The critics kept shouting on my face
That you weren't worth it, its time for the new settings
They kept asking me to walk out of stage
To walk out & find a new plot
As they said you will only bring the dark
I ignored all and every time you moved forward I gave you my hand

Though applauds increased every night,
But gradually criticism was building inside
I ignored everything for I had you
and we were perfect
Fool I was I didn't see how often your heart flickered,
It was too much to accept...

and so I walked out.... leaving the scenes and the story incomplete..
Broken to see how relived you were to see my exit

Though they criticised you right and left
But I saw myself walking out in neglect
As for all those who pointed fingers at you
Are now your audiences cheering with the crowd as you move

One Last Time - I stood in the arena all by myself..
Looking around seeing those faces who abhorred you
But now they stand clapping, just so they can be part of your shine
& All I could do is smile...
Now I realise the script was not written to abandon me
But to protect me from this hollow shrine !
