It was Autumn for our relationship in her heart before it suddenly ended.

My heart is as bright
as the color of the fall tree
you stand beneath
clutching leaves
smiling

Warm brown eyes
moist as the glistening dew
reawaken me
on this early new day

My legs like coils
leap at your call
We share the green grass
that clings to our clothes

Your eyes are my eyes
on this golden morn
where sunlight spreads
over the rising obstacle

You look away to see
what the light brings
where nature breathes
and sighs our content

Without warning
joy and expectation
flee to the forming clouds
there on our horizon

Your eyes like caverns
indifferent to autumn
summon winter's advance
as we stand alone together
clutching leaves.


Everything can suddenly change. For me, I didn't see what she saw. She saw something in the future I did not. Wherever we were going as a couple, it would not be romantic anymore.
