the song lasts as long as there is music

I washed the last of you
off of me
in the shower this morning.
The subtle scents
of feminine sweat
mixed with
the lovely aroma
of your body,
all went down the drain
to where “hello”
meets “goodbye”

we found time
to congeal ourselves
between our smells
and some loving grip
until the hands of fate
dissolved us into lonesome ether
once more.

When I close my eyes
there you are,
beaming into the mirror
between our faces,
forever is nevermore,
for we can always go back
in memory,
in meditation,
and in music.
