Though acts and chapters swiftly turn
toward vacant pages past "The End"
and covers close on characters
whose deeds and speeches must suspend,

our script, abridged, seeks denouement
through memories, fragmented dreams
to reach completions past this play
where life (exeunt) has no more scenes

and leaves the worldly stage behind
to improvise within this mind,
the heroine of this lone heart,
where love subsists and none depart.
