Looking Back

lightning flashed

giving disco style glimpses

as the silhouette of a heart she loved

increased the distance with each nonchalant stride

standing motionless

observing her heart bleed

knowingly being dragged behind him

soon he will focus

realization will give way to pain

he will raise the empty chain

and look back over his journey

crimson streaks reveal the path he trotted

he reached his goal

only now does he wonder

could she have traveled the journey with him

she was ready and willing

in his hands

are chains to a memory of what once was

of what could have been

but he left her

blowing in the wind

as if she never existed

through no fault of her own

he walked the road alone
