By the Book

entry picture

We were a novel couple with a story to tell,

Like a limited edition - cool and sophisticated,

If only we could have reviewed and resolved our issues,

We had a hard back love that made us elated,

I should have read between the lines,

It was written all over your face,

Whatever happened to our loving page?

Like a flimsy paperback we fell from grace,

Maybe we will be back in print under a paper moon,

We were 100% proof but compatible we couldn’t be,

Your watermark is on my parchment forever more,

The spine that bound us has broken free,

In our final chapter you threw the book at me.
