In the play I wrote for you,
I play day and you play night.
I bow and exit to the right;
You descend onto the stage.

And there's just an empty page
held for your soliloquy.
The words were never meant for me,
so I never wrote them down.

In the play I wrote for you,
spotlights border me in place.
I call my lines out into space,
hoping that you even care.

Soon, I'm forced into the wings.
Soon, it's time for your reply.
I strain to hear the words, but I
was never good at fighting sleep.

In my mind, our light and dark can swirl together, tangle, spiral,
and I look you in the eyes, see only mine.
Then I know: this is my dream.

I return as if to prove
that you define my every move.
Ending me is all you do
in the play I wrote for you.
