that was everything


first loves
old dreams
childish conjecture

we thought our love could ignite whole cities
in those times when we worshipped the clan,
like elders of old, and ate our insides out over
the silences weighted like hard driven snow and
the doors closed with shattering clangs, hearts
gone cold, icebergs adrift on the sea of being

but shunning became welcome oblivion,
equal parts acceptance and gratitude

listen ~
they danced for a moment
across our blue horizon
that was enough
that was everything
