lost and found

Welcome Monday morning with a poem.

What if we just stopped now
got off here and departed
in opposite directions
with no last look back
shuffling on
to whatever comes next
never again to lie
with our legs entwined
our faces close enough
to feel the pounding of hearts
the hotness of breath
lost without each other

What if we just stopped now
and started again
put on our shoes
and went for a walk
where no one knows us
familiar feelings fade
leaving us holding on
with nothing else to do
but drink till we are half full
daring to take one last sip
before it is all drunk
and we forget
how we got here
