There are some people who create a loving care,
Yet some conversations can just slip away,
Escaping the intended joining, ghost like,
Moving forever to a darker place beyond –
Both feel the parting: the longing for return hides.

As we parted that day I felt your anger,
Mystified and wondering who I had become.
In that moment my sanity escaped, drifting emerged.
Reveries appeared about the words and passion
Fantasies shaped in none-love: descending to dark.
Time heals but love can in moments be lost:
With the darkness descending, holding on to hope lasts –
In the careful dissection, taken from measured space,
Other conversations beyond the love and care appear:
Insight! The world reappears healed: Care returns.
