“Do you hear it – the cracking that’s happening inside my heart?

Can you smell it – the salty tears that are welling up behind my eyes?

Can you feel it – the withdrawal in my touch that hasn’t happened yet but it must?

Can you speak of it – the level of love that you are about to have lost?

Can you taste it – the hurt in my kiss that flavor of we must end this?

Can you stop all of this – or must I wish the only wish I could wish so you’ll hear, smell, taste and be able to feel and finally speak of what you are going to miss?

“Rinehart’s Poetry” by Ryan L. Rinehart
