Love In Reverse

Written by: Audonus Taylor

My love, were you as steadfast as I,
We'd drive the neverending chain 
link
of a bond unbreakable and rev 
towards
the fever of a solidified love affair.
Yet, I ride alone in despair and pass
scenes of you falling out of love with 
me.
From our last I love you to our first 
hello,
I see the twinkle in your eyes fade 
for me.

And of all reasons to brake for 
break,
you change gears with good intent...
And I find that to be the most 
painful.
Knowing, that I alone was not 
enough
to heal your fractured sense of self...
A failure I shall regret until I unlearn
my first memory...
For to have known you, is the one 
ride
of my thoughts that contained pure 
freedom.
Now, they fade in the wind shield as 
I
do 100 to 0 in the lane of smitten 
wonder.

And should I be able to forget the 
best of you,
I pray by moonlight that reverse 
becomes
forward, and I can catch your smile 
in my
dreams without knowing your face 
again.
Just an image of an unknown 
purpose that
lives around the corner of time and 
patience.
It is there, on this blind faith avenue, 
that I
 will carry you back home from the 
life we 
never had the chance to live...
