We came in early tonight
Earlier than previous nights
Our brief hug devoid of emotions
Setting aside our nightly devotions
We parted ways like birds take flight
The sadness, like a potion
Tears apart the cords that once held us
Melting the connect that ignited our motion
Making me feel like a confused Ahasuerus
Can I be a time machine?
Can I end thee waves of guilt?
Can I take us back to where our cords were intact and our connect motioned us forward?
Or can I take you further back
Back to where I didn’t exist
To points of sweet pleasure
And endless smiles
And good memories
Back, where I can cause you no harm
Or bring you any hurt
And your desire to be back would be fulfilled
Back, because sometimes back is better than forward
