I recall there was a lot of joy
When we first met.
Then we came together
And sometimes things went well,
That’s the way life goes.

In the end, things came to a head
And the things we said
To each other
Weren’t so great.
Anyway, that’s all in the past now.
I look back with neither yearning
But I have learned, if anything,
Not to reflect upon past loves
Using the mirror of memories
Of first and last impressions.
