And then the day began.
Your shoes were gone, your side of the bed, cold.
And then I recalled suddenly, abruptly, that
You hadn’t been there at all.
You’d moved on
to a little town
in a tiny state
with a little pretty wolf
on your arm
walked away clean
with all my love and dreams
ideas and plans
to make what we almost had
And then I noticed I was crying
not because I had done anything wrong
not because I loved you so hard it bled
from my nose
not because I’d have shattered the moon
to shards to fabricate a Magi’s comb
if that’s all I had to give
But because regardless of my perfect sacrifice
it was just the wrong size
the wrong color
the wrong time
And then I accepted that I would wait.
I will wait.
Until this life is over and the new one begins
just like the day.
Until the alignment of the wind and the stars
shift you full circle
back to me
Until then, until the end of time
When you love me
