so tell it straight
without the false romance of
distance and loss

you were in love
and then you weren’t

you lost each other
found each other again maybe
then waited to see what
would happen

got by for a while on
sex and fear and memories
and then it wasn’t enough

closed your eyes and
when the morning light forced
them open again
ten years had passed

you were both
married to strangers

you were both lost in
the forest

the edges had already
begun to burn
