The harsh bitterness

Of the once sweet rain

We danced and made loved in

On far too many days

Now only reminds me of

The immense pain

An unending smothering

A fire too quickly extinguished

I felt, as you were leaving

For a love you said was destined

Long before you ever kissed, me

Long before you said the same

When you first stole my heart

And I- freely let it go- to you

How else, could I feel- now

And if nothingness had a flavor

Surely, I was- that, inexplicable sour

My fruit of love- withering away

In the depth of darkness

In that place in my heart

Where you…once came
