Dark of the Moon

I watch her
disappear
over the horizon
again.

At least I knew
what to expect
this time.

Told her
all the right things
to get the
happy responses,
knowing full well
those eyes
hide a lightning storm,
and she’d be on
to the next
one true love
before too long.

Told her I still
loved her today.
I wonder if she
caught the hint of pity.

I don’t know
if she can
connect to
other people
like that.
