In the midst of
blank stares
and growling silence
the radio suddenly
played
a song that
added
a pint
of sadness

“There I was
thought I had everything
figured out
goes to show
just how much I know
‘Bout the way life
plays out…
I take one step
and I find myself
coming back
to you
my one and only
one and only
you”

But unlike the verse
of this heartfelt song,
there’s no coming
back
for us
for only a cliff
will catch us
if we ever
step back

And the stones stand
witness
that never
will
I ever
risk it all
that much
again

Such pain
and beauty
cannot be
felt and seen
twice exactly

by the world
who watches
over weepers
and winners
who win
and lose
the battles

Battles they
chose to fight for,
to fight with,
or worse,
to fight over
