All the dreams we wove together,
Knotted tight with our love,
Tinted all the hues the daylight brings,
And the dark tones of the night,
Unravelled with a single word.
Blind to the gulf between love and pleasure,
Sure of a future no one could ever know,
In our blinkered ignorance
We left so much unsaid, so much undone.
We never thought
To tug the dangling string of goodbye
To see if it would hold.
