Closing Curtains and Bittersweet Goodbyes

Stage fades slowly to black
It's over now
We hope you enjoyed the show
Next, curtains close
Sliding together at an agonizing pace
Your eyes
They're all I see
As curtains close
And dancers leave
Silent eyes, staring
Right back at me
Bittersweet departures crash over me
Goodbye rests on my tongue
Like a burning aftertaste
Can't let go just yet
Wishing to savor what it had
First hinted at
But that is gone
All that's left is
A twisted show
Over now
An empty stage
Cleared out seats
And those eyes
Speaking so unclearly to me
It just might be
Time to say
Goodbye
And let my words flow once more
