Viewing the same scenes and scapes

From a different place

I've had that role, I've played that part

I know every line by heart

-

When I recite it now again

I can still feel the pain

Infused with the words you say

Reflected by expressions you display

-

The applause will roll and fade

In each moment's masquerade

Though the madness we illustrate

No other cast can replicate

-

This is no ordinary drama group

No actors can play our parts

Or speak our truth

That was me and that was you

-

It moves me greatly to confess

The tragedy was no pretense

And when the curtains close on us…

Let this be the end
