Happy Endings

It’s said many a story has a happy ending,

but I doubt it,

not in the end.

”To cease upon the midnight with no pain”

is the best that

can be hoped for

and it seems rather a melancholic take

on happiness.

There may be a few brief encores,

perhaps more

than expected,

but when the final curtain falls

that’s it

your performance is over,

you’re done.

And you won’t be invited to the after show party

even though your presence may be felt.
