After Words

There came this moment
when life broke free and
I questioned every tenet I sat down
every verb desired to be a noun.

I want - my want. I love - my love.

Afterwords, the compromise.
I sit beside you at the table
an ocean is between us.

Just lovely - a few words describing a seismic event...

I sit beside you at the table
an ocean is between us.

Omigoodness, that is a heartbreaking sentence.
