In the darkness I stayed
until light led me to you
on stage.
With sets that blurred fast
we danced a seductive
In stages more deceptive
than reality.
Before an opaque facade
of life left images.
I endured until the
curtain dropped and
restored me back to light


Author's Note: I have since moved on ...but it still hurts at times.....

Beautiful, even if all the images are not easily understood.

Ah yes, life as a stage. I like the movement amidst the light. Thanks.
