Lover's Dialogue

Lover's Dialogue

A Stage Play by Warren L.G De Mills
"

An opera song between two despairing lovers

"

Girl:

Such melancholy, you sob so heavily.


Boy my heart was yours but you gave


It to the wolves who were prowling since


Before I ever met you . I swear


I never loved a soul other than you but


You.....died, or at least the you i thought


I knew, The you that would hold me and


Teach me and tell me all the things that


My loving heart needed to hear. Boy


I was your dear I would cling to every


Word I would hang on every moment


I would hold to every promise but you


, you could not see it and you mistrusted


Me, you were disgusted by a habit, maybe two.


And now my heart has left you so at night


I hope my voice resembles the rain drops


Cuz it's all that you'll hear from me, the cloud


That will rain upon you thundering regrets.



Boy:

Love, What a heavy word to use


For something that seems to always


Dissipate with time and the laws of


Diminishing returns applies. The more


I give in, the more i would cling, the more


My soul would yearn to shower you with


All that my filthy rags could afford. The more


You pull away, the less you would notice my


Efforts to perfect every mistake, that i made.


And I could have stayed in that position


And served to complete the mission but I could see


You did not care that I had seen things about you


That were more than just displeasing , unappealing


But rather they were deceiving me to believe


You were the one for me. This cloud of regret


, it floats over my head and I swear I thought I heard


Your voice in the rain for every night that I cried because


You wouldn't talk to me you rather be with somebody else


. After all that I have done, girl this time my heart is gone


I'll jump over the hole next time i decide to fall in love with


Someone.



Together:

Is this what we've grown to be?


This was not by design but by the flaws


Of our own ways I think I want to fix it


But do you? I still remember those nights.....



Girl:

You would tell me those stories till


We fell asleep on each other



Boy:

You would cling to every word


I was your friend, I was your lover



Girl:

I would cry from your eyes with


Every word , we were birds of a feather



Boy:

I had taken your hand, I proposed


I promised you love from one moon


To another



Girl:

Is this really the end of it all?


I don't know if i meant it all


When I said this was over



Boy:

Is this it? I've said many things


But this was never my intent . To


Betray the one I love, to insult


The promise of love and integrity of


Commitment. Girl I'll be back for


You but for now I think we just need


Some space to breathe. A little time to


Gather ourselves and to come to the


Right conclusions.



Girl:

I think this was wrong....How could I


Throw away all that we've been through


And all that we've made. Maybe I was


Wrong to forget all that you've done



Together:

maybe we were wrong


maybe we should fix this


The clouds were just passing


now the rain subsides and


our voices intertwine with


harmonies and melodies


the peaceful tone of jubilee


finds its way back to us


The future is uncertain


and the past is gone


But now is forever


and its best spent with someone


like you
