Perhaps there is no river

For me to drown in

As there was for Ophelia

Rejection hurts

Be you a character of the Bard’s imagination

Or as real as I

Living as you may have done

Centuries before me

Or today, in this time….


I am, forever, playing the tragic lover

In an endless theatrical production

That is my life
