was never meant to be
We were fragments
of a broken mirror
moving together
in the faceless tides
of shifting shadows
Love caught in the eddies
of life’s shoreless seas
between the darkness of night
and the silent shores
of morning
Our love was
briefly incandescent
burning us to ashes
in the moment
Its sweetness still lingering
in the last fires of the day
