Please forgive my silence

As the water waves

Where everything is love

And responses should be in kind

I cannot say my goodbye.

 

Instead,

Undecided

I moved through shadows away

from a shared sunlight

Unannounced,

 

Which is to say…

There

My absence

will

only

eventually

become obvious.

 

What has discouraged me from the love letter

Has induced me to give up on the final word, too

 

One cannot speak to love

Much less speak for it

 

And yet,

This is all that is left.

At the tidal end,

A desire to respond literally to the end

Through the clarity of a language

That could not

but anticipate

the distance

of tomorrow.

 

Which is to say…

Absence

was

always

going to become obvious.

 

As these waters wave

Where love is everything

All responses in kind

(should be)

We need love, above all

To forgive the silence

Overshadowing

the hopeful sunset

of these two words:

 

Good bye

 

Which is now to say…

Our love

would

only

eventually

become obvious.
