Curtains

A Story-Poem

I pretend
to swim
through a sea
of memories
while she dances
alone in a corner
of the living room.
So much is lost
in the giving
of love to another.
She remembers
nothing of the moments
we shared or
the pain we felt.
I reach out
to pull the curtains
from her brown eyes
and find only
another layer
of darkness and regret.
