almost couplets

my heart fires hot and cold
when you pass through my mind

the beginning has become old
a year reaches nine

i took away your mornings as i tried to calm my heart

before it built a century of us
a lifetime no possibility you gave

so for now i dance a soloist
i bowed you out before you knew what had changed

a forest of thoughts i plunge through to find good reason to explain you

you held yourself tight
cautious not to let yourself show

when you cried i felt your fight
the memory flinches inside me until now

so single we remain, together and apart

an unexpected birth will surprise
