Magazine cut outs pasted on a board – a forward view of life well-lived.
An ocean cruise, me and you dancing on the deck with the smell of the sea and the sultry tropical air.
Stars winking above – atmospheric interference – but nothing in the universe is really fixed.
A wedding gown never worn peels away from the bottom of the poster – our hearts never became one because the darkness couldn’t depart.
I should have left it blank except for the words love and acceptance.
Was there ever a promise? Why did I expect more, or better?
Stories told, lies believed. Sadness and sorrow linger.
