foundational wreckage

certainly together
they saw the best in one another,
certainly at that first point,
they had each other’s
full support,
certainly in the beginning,
there was no one in mind but
the other &
that was all “right” & “good”
until that moment at which
the strength of one’s skill
came into question.

it doesn’t matter what the skill is,
doesn’t matter what was said---
what matters is that when things were
blissful, it went without saying that
there was encouragement,
there was someone in the world who would
stand by & go down with the ship if
necessary,
but unlike the movies,
the credits did not roll---rather,
wreckage began to form when honestly allowed
one of the two to admit that
the skill in question,
had been bested by another &
this burnt a scar into the very heart of the 
loved one,
so deep that suddenly 
everything else came into question &
the sky began to fall.
