CURTAIN CALL

We stand together on this stage
Lights dazzling our searching eyes
Hands held in trustful wonder
Bowing as the audience rises
The curtains swish their drama
Shadows dance forever
The perfection of our script
The pauses – one – two –three – the beats
I guess we got it right
Author Author
They’re throwing scented flowers
One more melodramatic kiss
We perfected romance
We took their breath away
I am all alone on this stage
Darkness and dust dismays
My hands clasped in prayer
Heavy with the past
The curtains closed too soon
A monologue of mystery
Words fumbled and lost
Waiting for you to turn
I guess we got it wrong
Actor Actor
You walked away backstage
The moon lit your path
We perfected sorrow
We forgot to breathe

  1. The juxtaposition of the memories is brilliant! Excellent as always. I always look forward to amazing pieces from you 😊

  2. Thankyou so much for the very kind comments. This has been a tremendous experience and I am in awe of all of the responses. Three favourites for me so far but unfair to say which. What I will say though is read the Sue Healey response. Awesome.
