Here

We were star-crossed

and then committed.

We were children

and then adults

dressed in ill fitting clothes

and promises.

We were in love

always

away from home

and I soon learned

affection of this ilk

was unsustainable

because it wasn’t fair.

It wasn’t fair to love you

in every other place

except

here.
