Exodus

You
The almost absent
Excruciating luxurious temptation
How long until your vibrance fades
Until
You are a name
Forgotten
Ephemeral, someone
I could have loved
Perhaps
I should have loved
I
Always did
Know the answer to your question
Enticing
As the siren song scent of your skin
Soft
As the warmth of summer dancing in your honey eyes
Somehow
Never meant to rest on mine
Tantalizing almost forever
How many happy moments there could have been
Would have been
But
With you, complacency
Stifling enmeshment in a world to which I do not belong
Self, sacrificed
And you
Beauty
Forever chasing a horizon you’ve never seen
Attached to one unbound from this place
In time despairing your love of this dreamer
Instead
We part
Never tasting our fate
Suspending ourselves in untested infatuation
Remaining for each other a verdant possibility
Forever my favorite and most addictive agony
I choose to let you get away
Now
Thank you
For the time to learn how not to love you
