words of love ...

words of love ...

your words of love
drift by me
like soft clouds
billowing with hope
and brimming with
the rain of promise
until the moment
catches on the bedpost
of my silence
and with a startling puff

i watch
your eyes become liquid
watch your look turn
first one way
then the other
i suspect
for the failing fragments
of your dreams
the future you imagined
and the lifetime you created
a dream of forever
that evolved in a single thought
and has now evaporated in another

you turn to me
with trembling lips
parted slightly
and when you find the courage
to repeat the ceremony
to repeat the words
your voice betrays you
and your heart flutters
the instant you look deep into my eyes
and realise
i am already gone
