turn of the tide

Keep Art Alive :: “Turn of the Tide” :: Art by Sarah Joncas

“You’re not in love with someone else,
you don’t even love yourself.
Still
I wish you’d ask me not to go.”

turn
by me

six years
of better days
a room by the sea
our mirrored reflection
reversing
to this worse
as we sit here
taking sides
across a table set
for strangers
once lovers
fighting a case
of forget forever
wishing that one
or the other
would just give in
rewind the tape
to a hello
who are you
after we fell
before we broke

I do wish
you’d asked me
not to go

Till Death Do Us Part :: Madonna
