Whole

The inevitability was undeniable

That one day
We’d exit two separate doors.
Travel two separate directions.
Continue to exist in two different realms.
Was it part of the plan? That
Only part of your life here was my
—whole.

Our last embrace squeezed out the final moments
that your body would warm mine.
And as I pulled away, I saw the leaving in your
Cold blue eyes
Soon. You were gone. You were
Whole.
