As it lasted, we met: the blue entirety
Of an open sky. Our new expanse of time
Meant we could be two loves, like two distinct
Songbirds in the distance, flying apart
Together, free. We painted love like art
And overlapped like waters: we were linked
By something wide, a shade both yours and mine,
Ourselves, but drifting in our surety.
Perhaps the colours spilt: lost subtlety
In how we were. Eventually, I’d find
Our shared horizons distantly would shift.
We shared too much, perhaps: for every part,
And every pulse was beat from our same heart.
One cannot live by halves. So, cast adrift
As our own, we learnt to shade our own blue skies:
All that we share now, is blue entirety.
