past the point of no return


PHANTOM:
Passarino - go away!
For the trap is set and waits for its prey . . .

You have come here in pursuit of
your deepest urge, in pursuit of
that wish, which till now
has been silent, silent . . .

I have brought you, that our passions
may fuse and merge, in your mind
you've already succumbed to me
dropped all defenses completely succumbed to me,
now you are here with me:
no second thoughts, you've decided,
decided . . .

Past the point of no return -
no backward glances:
our games of make believe are at an end . . .

Past all thought of "if" or "when" -
no use resisting:
abandon thought,
and let the dream descend . . .

What raging fire shall flood the soul?
What rich desire unlocks its door?
What sweet seduction lies before us . . .?

Past the point of no return,
the final threshold, what warm,
unspoken secrets will we learn?
Beyond the point of no return . . .

CHRISTINE
You have brought me to that moment
where words run dry, to that moment
where speech disappears into silence,
silence . . .

I have come here,
hardly knowing the reason why . . .
In my mind, I've already
imagined our bodies entwining
defenseless and silent -
and now I am here with you:
no second thoughts, I've decided,
decided . . .

Past the point of no return
no going back now:
our passion-play has now, at last,
begun . . .

Past all thought of right or wrong -
one final question:
how long should we two wait, before
we're one . . .?

When will the blood begin to race
the sleeping bud burst into bloom?
When will the flames, at last, consume
us . . .?

BOTH Past the point of no return
the final threshold, the bridge
is crossed, so stand and watch it burn . . .

We've passed the point of no return . . .



a personal favorite
it's a play within a play woven into a story
