missed cues

“House to Black” by the alleged kat, ©2014 Kahana Ho

it is
after the curtain falls
after the costumes are hung
after the flowers of fans and friends
are carefully carried to the dressing room
it is
after the house lights go down
after the stage doors are locked
after i start my lonely walk in the lonely night to 
the emptiness of my lonely room
it is
then
i hope you will be there
but itʻs always the same
i cross my stage, alone

knowing
youʻll never make your entrance
