Sorry, my Beloved
I cannot go there with you
How can I sink to the bottom of despair with you
and be of any use to you —
and myself?
We would both be spinning our topsy-turvy tops
in a topsy-turvy world
with no support
no anchor —
no self-help for each other.
So I have decided
that this time —
for the first time ever
since we’re together
that I will do what is best for me
so that it can be better for us.
I will wait for you, up here
in the pure air
perfumed by the sweet scent of our undying love
and unceasing devotion to each other.
So my dear
meet me up here
after your dance with despair —
for I remain,
in love with you.

One Love
