Clean break, I heard the snap
All gone alligator, no lavish nap.
Tears all real, deflated zeal,
I’ll kiss you dry, your hands in mind.
The moon and sun we swapped for fun –
I never thought this day was done.
Clean break, but longed embrace,
Still standing on the precipice.
Bodies twirled, a together world,
While endings loomed, still hope unfurled.
An unexpected glimpse of bliss ….
What could have been, now never seen
Can’t say goodbye, for you I try.
That was then, but this is now.
I’d like to time-travel
– I don’t know how.
I’d record our words, immense connection
Replay perfection in all dimensions
Instead I ache, still…. unrelented, that thing in me, so flawed, repented.
Now I know, as I still cry
It’s rarely clean to say goodbye.
