And So

by mossgirl19   Aug 24, 2017

And so, today we ended up
Splitting the rainbow in half
and became content
in the knowledge that
The colors of our memories
Will forever hold us in awe.

Maybe the sky didn’t hold us
Because it can’t stand
Something more
beautiful than it.

Or maybe relativity
dictates we are destined
to be strangers
as the sun is to the moon.

We are beautiful together
But even more picturesque apart…

And as our eyes met
For the last time
Deep in our silence
We know that…

We did not find
that pot of gold
because like the rainbow
There is truly not an end
to what we were.

    The infinite is the prospective we look with awe! But we are really part of it.
