Thirteen Hours

Thirteen hours:
The amount of time it takes
To travel from “I love you”
To “I have to walk away.”

Thirteen hours:
That number fills my head.
What was full of life at noon
Was gone, then. It was dead.

Thirteen hours:
Consistent with my fears.
That’s how long it takes one’s love
to simply disappear.
