Below the sapphire sky,
young lovers embrace
in an affectionate hold.
As sweet as wine,
they exchange solemn vows
to forever share a heart.
Yet, no emotion has the strength
to stop the hands upon the clock;
all things must grow and age
all beauty must rust and desolve.
Miles are covered between
the touch of glass and the mouth;
throughout stretched time,
all things become transformed.
But like an enlarged circle,
everything returns to its beginning.
"Dear self,
today I must bring
an ending to a longing legacy.
I must stab this heart
right in the dead center."

He wrote this as tears emerged
from his glossy eyes.
A movie without words
began to project in his mind.
Too many years have passed,
some endings do not come
in an expected shape or form.
She ran from him one evening
and some run for but a marathon.
With bandages and stitches
a wound must closely heal.
A scar is left there as a thanks,
visible and vulnerable.
Many moons later,
the time has come.
She watches the stars
as they enter the dark canvas.
He watches the moon,
the same one as she.
This, he knows but can't
decide to find comfort
or accept failure.
"Goodbye, my dear, forever,
this is the ending
of chapter last."

His solemn hands
folds this unsent letter
and he throws it
in the trash.
A window that's half open
blows in a drift of relief.
In order to find peace,
one must finish
what he has started.
All open ends are cut,
there are no more potholes.
The epilogue has ended,
the prologue is opening.
A different wedding band awaits,
one trusting and lighthearted.
Fate works in ways
that are unexplained;
with a long P.S.,
it's amazing to see
how far you go
from the point of your "the end".
