We look in the mirror
our reflections no longer intact
Jagged pieces of our souls
scattered in the wavy glass
as the sun slowly sets
on our dying dreams

You turn to me
I look in your eyes
I once called them a poet’s eyes
So vibrant     So emotive

You reach for me
I touch crystal tears falling on your cheek
We make something     I won’t call it love
An act of desperation    of self-preservation
as our last light slowly eases into dark

Hands clutching    fingers splayed
feeling for that remembered spark
Our bodies touch    retreat
strain towards absolution

Desire meets denial
Ecstasy embraces misery
Pulses race   hearts pound
until we feel each beat

Your eyes look beyond me
I cover my body with a corner of the sheet
Too much between us 
for meaningless words    trite  empty phrases

We quietly let the sun
as it softly slides into slumber
draw the curtain
on this     our finality

    This stirs deep, I have known this wanting and desperatly clinging to what was not meant to be. The mixture of pleasure and pain is almost unbearable. Almost!
