//Almost

Whoever said,


"What you don't know


can't hurt you."


didn't understand that 


it can hurt not to know,


to reach for something,


feel it rest against your palm


like a wish you didn't know you made


or a dream you didn't think could be


until it slid away.


 


So I am tired


of the Almost-Loves


that hurt more than


Widow's-Grief


because the idea


of loves


and lovers


that MightHaveBeen


somehow cuts


even more 


than a love that 


once was;


that wish, that dream


sliding past


a wrist
