Till Death Do Us Part

Till Death Do Us Part

Extras in our own ill-fated drama, teetering on termination; awaiting the axe.
Playing obsolete roles for the ignorant masses,
Too fat and complacent to catch the shift in us,
Too close to the stage to see the sleight of hand; the illusion.

All they can do now is clap on, unaware.
Confused when the lifeless thing in the corner is examined and pronounced dead.
Stunned when the rings are thrown into the crowd as they separate and take a bow.
Leaving by different exits to take up new roles, on a new stage.

  1. sad but beautiful in expression.. blessings and healing to you! AND thanks so much for now following me…I am indeed humbled and honored. Hugs across the miles, Jeane


  2. I am still learning to navigate this blog site/world (-; saw a note from you about being snowed under but can’t find it now! Happy shoveling! I know about that ‘snowed under’ feeling though there’s not much real snow in San Diego (-; blessings…Happy June!


    • Yes, it was on my About page, geniecan. I’m snowed under with things to do for my upcoming holiday, not the lovely white stuff….though I might be grateful for a bit of snow soon, as the temperatures where I’m travelling to are close to a 100 F or 37.7 C, way too hot for me.

      I’m pretty much in the same boat as you, I’m still trying to get to grips with the workings of WordPress. We’ll both get there eventually.

      Again thank you for coming to say hello and welcome aboard. 😀


      • I’m right there with you on figuring this thing out. It’s okay, it’s better to be lost together than have the rest of “them” laugh at us, right? 🙂

        Beautiful, by the way and inspiring, because death happens to us all and you’ve made it sound peaceful, unlike another going out kicking and screaming! Unless you’re talking about divorce, in which the meaning is the same. 🙂



  3. It was meant to be about divorce, but I can see how it could be about death too.

    Thank you for your reply. It’s good to see how others interpret my words. It’ll make me think harder about how I express myself on here in future. 🙂
