There were days when our love kicked

rivers out of its way with relish

and powdered up the fluff of meadows full

as

There were hours when our hands broke

tides, melodies, stranded together we stood

and ached as the love we shared

was

There were minutes when our kisses flew

ending at”forty-nine”

you’d whisper, and promising

fifty

tomorrow.

Now the seconds pass

over me in silent solemn

procession, I’ve been forcing myself to

know

there can’t be a fiftieth.

For today was yesterday’s tomorrow.

And I am devastated, wishing there would be.
