Afternoon

Old lovers
Strolling
Through
A mountain
Forest sunlit
Trees considering
Their autumnal
Colors
Small lake
Cool water
Speaking to
The one
Hiding behind
The broken
Past always
Weeping
Sorrowing
Away anger
Multiplied
By denial
Lovers age
Exactly as
Expected
Broken
Mended
Strong
Scarred
No joy in
Such reunions
Overflowing
With
Confession
Small and
Irreparable
Such secrets
Are the
Stuff of life
Swallowed grief
Echoes through
Pleasant
Discourse
Useless as
Trivia
Burning the
Palate
Swallowed
As bile
Burning and
True as
Goodbye
