Rewound

time rewound.
stars recalled light,
until sky resembled
all that never existed.

big crunch ballistic.

all words written,
unwritten.

there would be no
i love yous,
mistakes
to apologize for, no
dreams to die
hearts that break

and

no smiles or laughs
or passionate sex
no reasons to fight
or stay up at night
with them
on your mind

nothing to risk
to fear
to lose
to love

a self-consuming
black hole
the toll to pay
for wishing
it all away
