Short but powerful. My favorite kind. This poem shows what can happen when two people who can't be together (for whatever reason) don't want to be apart.

Final Moments

It wrecks me, that last moment
that played out so wrong.
Our hopeless eyes locked
just a few seconds too long.

And my eyes begged yours
to ask me to stay.
And your eyes welled up
as you walked away.
