Or Not To Be / At Last

OR NOT TO BE

Life is such a stage

I have delivered all my lines

Under a broken spotlight

Spoken hallowed echoed words

To empty theater walls

Animating a figure in a script

Like only a starving actor could.

 

No mask can be worn forever

Draw the curtain please

While I exit to the left

Peel the make-up off and undress

The door behind me shuts

Letting the star adorned fall

Off such a staged life.

AT LAST

 

Nothing was saving the day

And there was nothing left to say

Through it all

I never cried

Until at last

I died.

 

The darkness came

At last

The world forever after

That maybe still remains

At last.
