Us

By JustAnEarlyBird

It was glorious,
When it started,
Before, one day,
It wasn't.

When did the beginning
Shift to the End?

In the blink of an eye
A moment of distraction
The middle was there and gone
Before either of us
Even knew

It was glorious
When it started
But what we never said
Was how equally glorious
The end was

How it began with passion
And ended just as passionately
In the other direction

How it was like
The pull and the push
of two magnets
With no middle ground
At all

And it was loud and boisorous And blinding
And it was heated and invoking and raw
And it was electric- SO Electric!
And it was all our own

And Oh, was it glorious!

Through the passion
Of our youthful romance
It was done

Our flame had melted the glue
Of our one,
And we became two...

I was (gloriously) done
With you.

Author's Note:

I was listening to a talk, "The Power of Poetry, with Helena Bonham Carter, and Jason Isaacs", and one of the speakers mentioned how we always talk about breakups like the entire relationship was terrible, when in fact, it usually starts off as glorious.

    I'll come back and comment better. I'm gutshot at the moment. This was so good.
