(anastasia – act 1)

By: Robert Pino

so, now, twenty hours in to this partnership this grand experiment of faces and voices the two day waltz of the one day prelude we are dancers building in passion and speed toes straining under the balanced weight of outstretched and interlocked arms entwined and entwinement the act and the state the actions and the actors we are rocketing drunkenly to unvisited places naked even to the augmented eye but out there, we know dear, dearly, and darling framed flowers, fraying things carried in plastic bags to protect them from the rain and these feelings inside of me now, can i really say that i know them?

And Now, Eternity By: Doireann O’Sullivan

It’s hard to remember the bad that outweighed the good when I made that choice And it hurts to remember the great, amazing times I had And the confident, content, loved person I was And the things I gave up, and the heart that I broke And the life I surrendered. To see you pick it up with someone else Like we never happened Like you only loved the idea, not the person. More people around me find people around them And my age climbs And my idealism shows cracks And my hope slowly fades The light wakes up my daydream And I know I can’t keep clinging to the same ideas The only ones that put me to sleep That fill the daytime void That give me somewhere else to go That allow me to think there is something better ahead (Even though experience tells me there is no romance). I can’t accept that I live in a world where my daydreams will always be daydreams. That thing I hold onto so desperately Is the thought of a person, who might never exist. It’s either me or you. Maybe I’ve only ever escaped.
