Sadness persisting
Feelings confused
Loneliness dominates

One, released by choice
Sweet, soft connection
Set aside to pursue another

Two, missing in action
The runner, the clown
Always and never meant to be

Three, gone to necessity
Returning someday
To wait, proof this love’s truth

Sorrow invading
Tears now released
Obscurity threatens

Three, two, one . . . Poof!
