A lifetime ago

by Em

Once your heart was mine
and mine yours -
Together we made
bitter, sweet memories

Memories that I thought would last,
stay imprinted in my irises
and upon my heart,
especially as you stitched the torn parts
back together.

Back together?
Did I say that.
We will never be
each others home,
Ever
Again.

Once upon a time,
I was naive enough
to think that you were
mine and mine,

alone.

So beautifully sad Em. It's hard when you get back together and it's that "honeymoon" period and it has you thinking that this time it is going to be different, then BAM! Same crap, different day. Your write has so much longing, you can't help but feel the optimism and the crushing defeat when it all goes sideways. Well done-
