Nothing Lasted Forever

Everything that’s
a thing had a beginning.
They never had one,
never were one, yet
they had something,
just never That thing.
She had no idea
they never had
That, never considered
their’s more than
a friendly, innocuous
(some)thing,
a pleasant, nonspecific
relationship in which
she’d touch him
when they’d laughingly
converse in that
innocuously pleasant
and warmly playful
way people do who might
be beginning one of
Those things. When he
accepted nothing like
That ever began, he
figured at least he’d
never have to suffer
through the pain of
one of Those endings.
But he still does.

On Day 4 of poem-a-day NaPoWriMo, I combined Writers Digest’s two-fer prompt of a beginning and/or ending poem, as well as the prompt from NaPoWriMo.org. It called for writing a poem with a secret – in other words, a poem with a word or idea or line that it isn’t expressing directly. I’m on a roll of mushy. You figure it out.
