your curse is to just love once
try and try
move into him
and tears flow down his shoulder

you whisper and smile
turn every stone
wait for him to drive through
and rain trickles through the cracked pane

you promise the world
and walk back with just a map
trace the points where the river ends
and he stands a blue blur over the bridge

you cry to forget
he laughs with her
beating of a sinking heart
can never die to love just once again
