I see you with her
so indescribably sweet
love pours from every fiber of your being
a miracle before my eyes
I ache with regret
all the way to my soul
those precious little moments break me
a million pieces
scattered in every conceivable direction
you are so in love with her
I have missed my chance to swim in the ecstacy of every coo
to marvel at each imperceptible milestone
I missed your first kiss – off chasing dragons
that’s the price I pay for being too selfish
or maybe too sick
to notice tender moments incubating miracles
the price when
a child is an inconvenience
I didn’t even know what I was missing
I do now.
my only salvation
is to feel this exquisite heartbreak
writhing between longing and ecstasy
knowing that this shattering
is that love
