That look haunts me. I was so busy trying to get images of now,

to save for the future, that a lot of the time I forgot to live…

Missed opportunities to live just to save.

She knew, she suffered my obsessions,

stoically, but with a sense of exasperation…

Live now, she would say.


I was so happy I wanted to save it up

for a rainy day, this rainy day perhaps,

But what I’m left with mostly,

is the look of despair she gave me,

and not the pure joy which held us…

Enraptured. Only my mind knows that!
