Courage

we are seated together on the sand
as the sun is setting.
we speak about life
and our dreams,
our hopes and desires;
how our beliefs are much the same.

the darkness of the night comes creeping in
and the fire is becoming dull.
I look over at you
and you speak to me with your eyes;
no words are needed.
gently yet fiercely
you place your hands upon my cheeks
and you pull me in close.
what a beautiful moment;
the sunset, the sand and you.

I feel your breath upon my lips
before I taste you upon my mouth.
Passion; two souls colliding
more alike than not
this moment is overwhelming:
beautifully dreamy,
but the feeling is not.

within the pit of my stomach
I feel it;
the hurt, the pain, the anger and the jealousy
feelings that have been suppressed over time
awoken from the darkness.
you’re not the same, but you’re all too familiar.
I pull back and look you in the eyes
I know you feel it too.

the end, before the beginning.
I stand up and look you in the eye once more
no words are needed
this moment speaks a million sorry’s without explanation.
I dust myself off and walk away.

I’m doing this for me
and I walk away without a second glance.
