the things we weren’t.

i don’t remember how we got here.
i don’t remember any of the words exchanged.
i remember rain and the hum of your car engine.
i remember knowing we would never come back from this point,
that all we had built
would mean nothing
after you drove away.
so i caught a glimpse of your profile,
eyes wide,
mine wider in disbelief,
as you stared straight ahead
into the dark night quickly enveloping the sunset
as it set on everything we had left behind,
everything we weren’t.
i tell myself now
that maybe i had made you happy once
and for that reason alone,
i have to forgive myself
for these things
beyond my control.
