Before He Went Away

His arrival was amazing,
the beginning of their dance
more than sublime.
It wasn't long before he went away.
Blank promises of passion spoke so
eloquently of the ever after.
That was all he ever left for her
within reality.

His focus bent on something
that was never really there.
His departure came, and then the lashing out.
As if some wild demons in his heart
were in control, pretending that he never
saw the whole of what he'd done.

There was a gentle beast of understanding,
hidden underground, that knew where
crystal miracles abound. Sentient, yet
quite unique, he spoke in whispered
images of love. Heaven bent, the time
they spent together.

Cultured minds and gentle hearts,
hand reaching out to touch another hand.
The best came to them without any plan.
Why did they need to keep that underground...?

His arrival was amazing,
the beginning of their dance
more than sublime.
But it wasn't long
before he went away...
