Bittersweet Rust – Written December 2008 (Aged 33)

Bittersweet Rust

all the things we said
and all the things we did
those silly nicknames
and our personal games
the closeness –
it has gone
like trying to turn on a light
one that once shone
and this darkness
where did it come from?
people say things
and i am still drawn to you
i knew that you never would –
match my dreams
who actually can?
but all that closeness we had
now it is nothing
all the things we said
and all the things we did
that currency between us
all those shared emotions
we travelled from love to lust
mow all we have is the taste –
of everlasting bittersweet rust
