After Tonight

Not after tonight.
Love will never be enough.
Love will not do.

Just a promise in a flimsy gown,
backlit by flickering hope;
just a crack in a rain cloud,
a storm in the blue.

Maybe, someday,
as orange burns to black,
on a smell, on a word,
this night will come to you.

Then unhook yourself,
from the wall of your life;
and find me
so we can talk anew.

But don’t talk of love.
For after tonight,
love will never be enough.

After tonight, love cannot be true.
