The elegant pattern
Of tear stains on the photo;
Saline statements
That fell from grace.
Careful not to alter the image.

Always being careful and proper.
Exercising great caution
And guarding emotions
So as not to upset 
The status quo.

Then why leave
The warm clutch of love
And adoring eyes
That made the ocean look pale?

I shall be haunted
With regret for eternity
By my ignoble behavior.

Now you're gone forever.
