[BEST OF 2019] Something good

It was 5.20am

and she had wondered

if this would be the one good thing

they could make last,

as the world turned

and the ground slipped quietly

beneath them,

and for once, she had been right;

love had not bloomed

but had sent roots deep

into the earth to hold on tight.
