Point Of No Return

DON JUAN (PHANTOM)

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 defences

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:

the games we've played

till now 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 . . .

AMINTA (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

defenceless 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 . . .
