"I Want the One, I Can't Have"--Morrissey Has The Best One Liners  
 
 
 
 
You stopped writing songs  
about your love  
of getting dumped  
and always missing your chance,  
and I felt your own hope  
as mine came alive once more  
too.  
   
We watched the third Heaven  
explode  
with hearts and birds--  
electric  
and I felt pure joy  
standing waist deep in waves,  
your arms around me, from  
behind, your smile--  
I didn't need to see it  
to know it was there.  
   
Is this how God feels  
when creation cheers  
as another two souls  
find their places, together?  
   
It's extraordinary--  
to see the visible form of love  
before the alarm clock rings, and  
the dream recedes  
in mists  
across the ocean, in which we stood.  
   
At least it was a (subconscious) start.  
Or maybe something--  
I don't know what.  
A whisper of "don't give up, yet"...  
But I (mostly) already did.  
   
I could easily have a pity-party  
but it serves no (useful) purpose.  
   
You'll go on  
writing those songs  
that keep you safe, and  
I'll still get messages    
from the Facebook trolls, who  
pretend to be a rich doctors
yet actually do have a thing for me
In a catfisher sort of way.  
   
Too bad they can't show who they really are,  
but you do  
and at least you're honest about it.  
   
One can dream, though  
and I did  
and that's all it was.

Author's Note
^^That's why I don't bother-- the one I married, preferred men, the one who truly loved me, died, the one I'd like to get to know, doesn't give two shits, and the one who is interested, can't even be whoever he really is, so I don't even know.  Not whining-- it's just laughable at this point.
