Icicle Tears

Perhaps now is the time to let go
While you yearn for another’s lips
What’s said cannot be unsaid
Once seen, the words echo round my being
A reverberating, aching sorrow
And something else…
A love so deep that I won’t keep you from another
Take your leave to be with your lover
Following your heart and dreams
Your path, it seems, may not be the one we chose to walk together
Strewn with golden leaves
Hewn with fallen, icicle tears
