Waiting For My Denouement

It was always to my understanding that in order for a drama to reach it's conclusion or denouement, there had to be some sort of climax. The denouement was that quiet time when one realized all the intricacies of the plot.
Right now I am stuck in a drama impending a climax. I am wondering, though, if it is possible to skip the climax and reach the denouement?

A Pledge To A Sunflower

You were the only one facing my direction in a sea of others.
I made sure of it.
It was like wishing I may and wishing I might, that you were really the first and only star before I made my wish.
So I made a wish, which was more like a pledge.
A pledge of allegiance to you for being different,
for having the courage to face a different direction,
and be yourself.

A Not So Subtle Sign

There are some signs in life that need no explanation. They're
placed right in front of us, unavoidable, and most often lacking in originality.
I find that the most obvious ones, usually go unnoticed. By time you realize it was a sign, you've made an illegal u-turn and caused a major accident.
At what point do you turn back and is it safe?
Should you wait for another sign?
I believe in signs.
I often wonder if I look too intently for them, thus avoiding the reason
they were placed there in the first place.
