Bitter Kiss

A bitter kiss
It’s better this
Way we are
Ignored by bliss
Your quiet smile
With spoke farewell
Hide reflections
In hooded wells
Our moments few
Borrowed, due
The note was signed
Before we knew
It might be love
It could be lust
Then why am I
Enraptured thus?
No more moments
Left to take
The train is leaving
It’s time to make
A clean break
Back to lives
Of work and spouses
And hidden lies
Let’s meet again
If our stars align
It can’t end here
With just one night.
