The Last Time

when was the last time, and did we know then that it would be?

no, for if i had understood i’d have held on forever, the end would never come;

i’d will it away.

there were tears that neither of us understood at the time.

i laughed them off. “this was too beautiful,” or something equally inane.

maybe if i hadn’t laughed, if the tears had continued, the denoument
would have only

been an interlude.


This was inspired by these stills from the film The End of the Affair

Peace, people.
