Unintended Affair



We collided

Became immersed in the drama

Knowing it was wrong

I borrowed faith

You stole trust

We consumed hope


Made promises

We never intended to keep

Said words

We never felt

Gave life to personas

That never existed


My world was dark

The only color black


Stuck in subtle shades of gray

Not enough energy between us

To sustain that flame


Time moved forward

We drifted apart

Left with only doubts

And unresolved issues

Knowing we both

Played the fool


Unexpected messages

Months later

A hushed voice

Whispers  “I’m sorry”

And “Good-bye”

Sounds from our collision
