Time Bomb

I hate the fact

that even my heart knows,

no matter how hard I try to lie,

that this,

us,

is a ticking time bomb.

“Hey,” you called as I gazed, long and far, at the sunset.

I turned, my chain of thoughts interrupted.

You smiled, that smile, and in that moment I could feel it coming –

You will be both

the worst

and in itself perhaps the best

storm

my heart will have to weather

soon enough.
