Living Without

flat_0_020

I don’t like living without; yes,
it’s an oxymoron – there’s more
space predicated by being within
than grieving what’s
unobtainable
 
we ceded the room and easily
identified differences – nicer
to be together, completely;
but really, who’s fooling
who after the event?
 
dull beads of this evening’s
role-play portrayed
what might have been –
if nothing else a sponsored
happy ending
 
so here I am; potentially
living without
you...
