a strong woman


we got into it too quickly  


we get into it too deeply   she 


backs off   says   this is goodbye

her eyes shutter  

go flat   the light is extinguished


all expression drains from her face

i am gone to her

something in the past


the hurt   though   in her body language

in her soul  

will never go away   i know her that well  


but she does it   i couldn't   wouldn't  

would ruin both our lives

Bravo, OTP.

The memories always live on, stored away in that special place in the heart, but it is important to know when is a time to end something that will bring more heartache than happiness in the end. Who knows? Perhaps time can change things ... but usually not. A very introspective poem.
