Sunset Peach ii

he had no intention of coming across as being insensitive or cold-hearted
but how to remain temperate in the telling of his truth
proved to be an artful pursuit just as difficult

under apricot skies
time was melting away
and she stood before his eyes
beautiful and breathtaking

the moment if framed would’ve packed the sweet but atomic content
of something akin to a Dali painting

the once deemed indelible remembrances
buried deep in a chest of emotions
those upon a time treasured and heartfelt
but now much further away from the surface

and on her face
a tear – windswept from the nasal bridge
his hurt hid very well for none could make or tell
so expressionless

perhaps it is so, after all, that Clarity is independent of all contingencies
and since to Will begins with a Need
it would be Right to surmise that there was none or not enough left
to save the relationship
