The elegant lies
of forbidden amour.
The brief, tender kisses
behind the dark scenes.
The sweetest elation
I ever had known
was falling apart at
the half-stitched seams.

Carefully hidden,
the "love" I'd supposed
rendered nothing but pain
and a dreadful decision.
Never before had I hurt
with such clarity;
scoping each fault
with an eagle precision.

The choice to be made:
to hold on or let go.
Grasping each memory;
cradling each day.
The smiling, the laughing,
the fun, and the dancing.
The danger was mine,
but I fell and I'll pay.

The end came too swift,
there was more to be done
as "together" and "we,"
and not "you," and not "I."
We were heart, we were mind.
We were slipping away
from the beautiful dream,
and I still don't know why.

I should have prepared
for the bitter conclusion.
The knife-cut was sudden,
but I should have seen it.
And after the why,
I have only one question.
When you whispered, “I love you,”
did you mean it?

Misa: I can't imagine a world without Light!
L: Yes, that would be dark.

This is superior work. Getting accustomed to good things from your pen.

I always love your poetry. I have a feeling this was written with a past love in mind? Mr. Marine?
