Eternity By Infinity [the final cut]

in hopes that we would go

the depth over the distance, growing
deeper than the roots of a tree

i took for granted that we would be
as one
for eternity times infinity; yet,

love is a feeling

memorized, destined to
immortality–

never forgotten
even if & when it dies
as it does sometimes.

& though yesterday is a memory, your soul
still gleams with the same brightness as the sun.

you were the total conjugation

of my entire language
& the music playing

in tune to moments
we’ve unhappily
lost in translation.

& our embrace,

a universe within itself
to call home, alive

archived in my mind
–that always refuses to go
quietly, already too late for a graceful exit.
