The Play

What a pair we were
When we were both pro
And antagonists
To each other
We advanced our story
And created conflict
And then you wrote me out
Of it all
Still in the editing process
But it's alright
I can still write
About you
And you
Can still be the heroin
In my tragedy
On this stage I set
For an audience of few
With an ending everyone saw coming
But is still a total shock
It's an ending
Shakespeare would've laughed at
A comedy in its own right
I was never much of an actor
And you?
You never even wanted the part.

The author's comments:
I decided to revisit and flesh out the poems from my work "Paragon." I ask you to read that as well, as it gets the original meaning better.
