[Tristan dies. Isolde is thinking of the time back in Ireland] My face in thine eyes, thine in mine appers. And true plain hearts do in the faces rest. Where can you find two better hemispheres, without sharp north, without declining west. Whatever dies was not mixed equally. If our two loves be one or thou and I love so alike that none can slacken, none can die. (John Donne, The Good Morrow)
[Isolde and Marke retire to their bedroom. Tristan watches their window from outside.] You're trembling. You are far from home and I am a stranger still. But you mustn't fear me. My wish is to make you happy, as a wife.. as a woman and hopefully one day, the fact that I am not whole will not offend you. [Marke kisses Isolde and makes love to her.]
[Tristan and Isolde look out to sea.]
What's he like?
Dark. Tall. Nearly twice your size. An absolute gentleman.
I thought... earlier when you spoke of wanting something you can't have.
I didn't know what I was talking about.
[They leave the shore and go inside the hut, Isolde is crying.]
Outside, just past that bluff there is a boat. That's how you should go when you leave. You should go soon.
[Isolde leaves but Tristan goes after her. They kiss. Inside the hut they make love.]
How do you feel?
I don't know
