Mimi-Mona Romantic Poetry: The Goodbye Kiss

we—in total grips of despair
each—alone in Paradise
reluctant after a long, difficult discussion
you to sleep in your car
me to fly away home
bags packed
feeling something never felt before
never in our lives
in—we kiss goodbye
fear—epic and uncontrollable
tears in our eyes, we're about to go our separate ways
constant flow of fear
plaguing us for the last hours
like a kink in the garden hose
races with every pulse
strong pressure builds
raging terror
vacation's end
bags packed and
steps—a few taken forward
unknowing—can I do it
will you let me
highly aware of your fear
will she do it
can I stop her
is this the beginning
the start of something bad
the dangerous downward spiral
of not facing up to our fears
of having to turn it into something else
of losing the someone we each love
returning—the fear we felt
reality—we will be apart
a series of ledges and cliffs
I cry out
I have agoraphobia!
you run toward me
embrace me...tightly
I'll never let you go, you cry
I'll never leave you, I sob
we—the sweetest promise
