Show’s Over

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Show’s over. Nothing left to see. You bought

your ticket and watched every possible scene. Actors

fatigued and tired of pretending. They want to go home and

be comfortable in their own skin. And yet you remain, waiting for

something to happen. Maybe they’ll sing some more and exist for your

wanting. Maybe they’ll dance a little and invite you onto the stage.

It’s over now and you’re the only one that’s playing. They

need you to go and come another day. This wasn’t

personal until you decided to stay.
