for that little while

Of course it was a disaster.
That unbearable, dearest secret
has always been a disaster.
The danger when we try to leave.
Going over and over afterward
what we should have done
instead of what we did.
But for those short times
we seemed to be alive. Misled,
misused, lied to and cheated,
certainly. Still, for that
little while, we visited
our possible life.

[Because anniversaries of really good things that aren't anymore kind of suck.
And I miss what I wanted, not what it turned out to be - but I also miss the real you.


  1. Sometimes you manage to blow up the death star with your found quotes.

  2. That's not exactly the goal, typically, but I appreciate it nonetheless. This one is heartfelt.
