On an Audience

I was told that an act only works on an audience
By my favorite movie
But I am wondering
What happens when your act is gone?
And your audience is still waiting,
Waiting for the show
But you've run out of lines
And faces
You've run out of blush
And lipstick
You've run out of scripts
And words
Nothing but emptiness
((and the truth))
Is now cascading.
You're stumbling
And stuttering
You are struggling to breathe
You fell
And are bleeding
((but no one caress))
They came for a show
A production
Something amazing
And beautiful
Not something broken
And bleeding
((but you can't give the audience what they want))
So my question still remains unanswered
And my wonder still remains
If an act only works on an audience
What happens when the act is gone
And your audience is still waiting,
Waiting for the show
What happens then?
