The Rendezvous

by Alex Knight

 

I thought about your lips on mine

And how I used to enjoy our rendezvous

We knew how wrong it was

How right it seemed

When she found out we both knew

It would have to end, but how could it?

Saying goodbye was harder

Than I could imagine

 

Your email out of the blue

Were not just words on a screen

You needed me more

Than I missed you

 

To get together, or not

We had promised to end it all

But there you were drawing me

Back into your web

 

I drove to the park

Not expecting to see her there

Pointing a pistol at me, no match

For an accelerating Hummer

 

The shot went wide

A short trial and a revelation

She killed you the night

She found us out

 

I think about your lips on mine

The shrinks all agree she’s cured

Her release date is pending

And I’m waiting.

You planned your life

Around its ending

Missing

love and joy.

Trying to make me

Believe what you believed

Without

Question.

Until too much

Of the Mayan this,

and

Mayan that.

Icy water realization

You wanted the apocalypse

Absolution for

tediousness.

No backward glance

At your fatal wounds

Your world ended

Today.
