Love in the Fast Lane

Love in the Fast Lane

A sweltering sky

floats, as we walk

the lengthy and twisting

picturesque streets. The knightly ships,

proclaimed as autos,

pass by at a frenzied speed

and never stop. Your glamour

holds for the moment and remains

my haven of security.

It’s both sacred and rare. But all relationships

find their ends through different circumstances,

and ours is no different. We just had more strength

of will and thought love would bear

and grow, each entrusting the other

to preserve it. But something happened

that day as we crossed the threshold to walk

beyond the watchful lands 

of ancient history.

Your allure was borne away

on a sudden chilling wind.

Your abrupt chilling, bitter words

cutting deep, even as newer cars

race by on their accelerated journeys.
