The Test of Time

The love you bore me is no longer there

Anguish, abandonment, I can’t bear

I thought of it as resilient withstanding time, and space

What I didn’t know

It would fail the test for grace

It wasn’t the forever kind

The one wish I had in mind

Despair hits me from behind

Where did I go wrong

Still trying to understand

Is it me, or is it you

(Sheen, June 2021)
