The end of the affair


I held you tight
My head lay on your breasts
The drums of your heartbeat
Beating a rhythm of love

This last meeting
Our life together now gone
Shattering hopes and dreams
He'd finally found out

The streets signs blinked
Rain fell weeping for us
Strip lights flickered sadly
Gravely we whispered goodbye

  1. Where are we today Old Egg - this one also feels heavy with loss and longing - i think we need a trip to the beach and an ice cream - superbly written however!

  2. Sadly it was not meant to be. Relationships can turn sour for some reasons but as long as one remains as a friend to each other is all that matters!
