When I Saw the Place We Once Lived

I have never loved so deeply
as I did in that moment in the summer dusk,
hearing footsteps in the alley pause,
my heart racing to hear our gate
softly squeak open;
it was you,
I saw your beloved silhouette
enter our sacred space
coming home from work;
that moment,
before our loving greeting
dissolves to our angry discontent,
that moment,
just before,
to have it
