Not ache with inconsistent tenderness.
It was untenable delight; we are free--
Separate, equal--and if loverless,

'Love consumes time which is more dear than love' - all lovers may not agree to this thought, but I do. 'And daylight ratified our reckoning' - that's a beautiful line! Congratulations on your poem's selection as the 'Modern Poem of the Day'!

Nighttime is the worst - the business of the day is over and nothing presents itself to distract and we are left prey to the tossing and turning in fruitless search of sleep while the heart yearns for the love that is gone. Great work.
