Forever?

glances stolen
over dinner tables.
shared cigarettes
and cups of coffee.
bangs floating
across his face.

i started things
by pushing them
behind his ear
and pushing
my lips
into his.

nights spent
intertwined.
two apartments
transform into one.
two lives merged,
forever one.

he stopped things
abandoning my arms,
finding solace
inside her
lustful
body.
