Eternity has passed since you escaped; infinity since we were meant to be. We’d watched the hours and we’d anticipated countdowns to togetherness, so real.
Four decades each had we to replicate; to live again and from ourselves be born – unfinished futures shared infinite fate and static blackness hid a love so warm.
Two persons new, one couple left to fate; foundations laid in poetry and word. The mortar ruined – too wet to be embraced; our house it fell as sonnets went unheard.
For all we were, we loved our universe; a blessing and a fucked-up little curse.
