The Final Phase - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

I felt the waning of our love predictably
Just at the moment when I desired the most
When you were the deepest dream to me,
You began to fade in my sight
Despite how I fought it,
You slipped through my fingers, poisoning me as you went
And when the phase was complete you disappeared
I should have seen it coming
You went out of my life like the tide, predictably
Leaving me alone on the sands
Wiping the gritty, messy residue of our love off my heart
Please don't come back now
I can see you considering, but I beg you
Fade wholly and completely
Drift off dramatically, become the stormy wandering dust
Scattering misguided feeling at each oasis
Let all our past affection be just that,
I sent my love for you to sea in exchange for peace of mind
Now, you can't come back
