I feel like an actor.
Jumping from one role to the next. Happy, sad, intense roles. Different ranges of talent required. I can fake them all.
I thought this would be different, you know?
I thought we were feeding off each other. But we weren’t. We were two struggling artists. One trying to maintain the façade, the other pretending there wasn’t a façade.
Denial comes in powerful forms.
We weren’t a one act play, though. And we were more than dinner theatre. Though we fell short of Broadway, at least we ended on a Shakespearean note.
But the curtain has fallen.
And there will be no encore.
