the air is dark around us,
the spotlight flickers and dies
its colors whirl around us
chaos takes the sky


applaud;
silence.


laughter;
tears.


happiness;
sadness.


hopes;
fears.



the movie draws out;

play by play.

we cannot find

the answers here

so, my dear, we mustn't stay


the act goes on,
it stands, the stage
i still have voice,
the light won't fade


the only fact

that will not
[cannot]


change
is that

i will act

alone.







[where have you gone?
you're not here anymore.
i'm enduring alone.


oh, i see.
in audience, on the far right,
a spectator
an observer now,
not included in this play.


you know, now that you've left,
i might fall
or crumble, or be washed away

still waiting
standing

acting on this stage.]
