In The Beginning There Will
Be An End
Life will never be
the same again.
It will have been an average house,
a simple day,
then the future – with your head
under my arm. Or the past.
What’s in the room at the
top of the stairs?
The elation, pleasure,
one thing at a time,
more than what was to come,
the unbearable prospects
Obvious grieving of course.
We have to stay here, pretending
it won’t happen,
it will happen.
