100 Words of Restraint (an elegy)

100 Words of Restraint (an elegy)

How much hope we had.
Restraint was how we grew.
Ever twining our long way
out of there; intertwining sans
desire. You, a golden Lotus,
Darling. (How you fit that
warm shoe: Darling.) You wore
that new car scent, crisp
and sweet, succulent, for a
man. Did I covet you?
Like the rest. I shouldered
my restraint. Strapped into you,
how could I escape? That
ejection seat. This far from
you, without restraint, I'll say
it, how I loved you.
How death did us part.
You were my heart. Devéras,
Carnál, Corazón, and at last.
We gave us our past.
