Teaser:

Unloving You

It’s hardest but most essential
Reversing all the distance
Distancing all the closeness
Eyes indulge a last rinse
Skin cells undo the caress.

That, or risk

The love turning grotesque
Bathed in jealousy
Steeped in comparison
Lose all sensitivity
Shrink the grandeur within.

Either one has to die
The love or the potential.
Correction,
The love would have died anyway.
I save what can be saved.
