There was a stop. There was some time between us there was a wall. I Was on top of it and
Did not anticipate the fall. It hurt but I healed when I looked at You. It seems I dream of love
But maybe not you.
There was a stop again and you said nothing at all. You smile. You Reach out. Your hands
Don’t reach. Your heart of hearts doesn’t beseech.
I am yours but you are not mine. Not in heart. I return. There is a Pain in restart.
And then. Then there was a stop. A Resolution. You move and pull Yourself to me-I to you. We
Meet. In the middle. We smile. Together we walk. Our shadows too far Behind to hold us back.
Together an endless sunset we stalk
