The potential of indefinites

If we are meant to separate

and the year of coiling needs to be rewound,

rewind with me.

 

If we must undo ourselves from one another

and the stitches need unpicking,

help me pull the thread.

 

If the promises we made are at breaking point

and they are ready to snap before their due date,

build new ones with me.

 

If we are not destined to be together

and time, place, circumstance means we cannot be,

help me find the time we can.

 

If our love is on death row

and we are readying for its final day,

let’s give it a final meal worth remembering.

 

If we are meant to separate

and the world can’t take all we are,

do me a favour – let’s go out with a bang.
