Supposedly

It was supposed
To be worth it
If we would have created 
A life
Together
Worth bending rules
Because 
What we had before was
Clearly 
Not what we wanted
Anymore

Now there is 
Nothing
Though we stacked
All the glasses lovingly
Neatly
Completely ready
For years
Until dust settled 
One last time
And after drinking
From them
A libation to 
What could have been
I waited some
Then walked away
From the skeletal things
De-fleshed and hollow


And in the mirrored view
A fool
Who gave the best of her days
To you
And the mythical world
We lived in 

How do I begin again?
Knowing 
One could invest 
Everything 
So stupidly
Marring the beauty
I was so sure to have seen
And believed

To this deflated and un-sprouted
End where the beginning 
Should have been

I lost you
Then me
As a stone
Sinks in some
Inner 
Cold and blackened
sea
