Red Light

Did you come back? After it happened, I mean? After the hurt stopped. Before the accusations started. Whilst the blood dried.

Did you come back to try and explain your decision? Your choice to see green when red was dead clear.

You took her choice away that day. Once she knew what rested on your heart. That circle of love was a link in a chain between me and her and you. She would commit to what you had both started.

I wonder then. Did you come back to say goodbye to us as she sat under that budless tree? Or is the end the end. A full stop not pregnant with meaning.
