Lost Things

Memories of that potency
Well, overflow.
Which is now more powerful?
The memory or the potency;
I only see myself move, reflected -
He, the static constant.
Made so by me.
So much easier that, to live with,
Easier if he was a locked door without
Instead of a welcoming curtained
doorway, moving;
Revealing, with the breeze my possible tomorrow.
The agony of that love, now, is
But the pain of the lost possibilty
drips out of me
Stains me.
I am stained by the knowledge
that I didn't walk through
that opening.
That I never felt the caress of
that soft curtain,
that I didn't even see the damn thing -
So busy was I, looking at myself.
Marking myself
With the whip of
Self - loathing.
