Nothing Ever Ends

25th August 2017
The night of our divorce
I dreamt we were back
at our beginning.
We hadn’t yet touched
but when we did it had the heat
of a thousand fingertips.

We were building a garden
somewhere I’d never been
I asked you if we would succeed
you said of course we will
and I knew
you were utterly sincere yet
your words would become a lie.

I woke up yearning
not so much for you
but for who I’d been
when we were together.
