Unclean breaks

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.

Hand held

Lavish

Kiss

…Oh…

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.

  1. The pacing and rhythm and rhyme of this was soooo…

    “Hand held

    Lavish

    Kiss

    …Oh…

    An unexpected glimpse of bliss ….”

    Fab,fab lines. Wonderfully inspired.

    I liked the love and regret and nostalgia woven together in this πŸ’œ
