The realisation that
Your love too has an expiration,
The time it takes to
Rot to the core,
The contents thrown deep in a pit
So it ceases to exist.
And the packaging,
Its shelf life decreasing by the day,
Going out of fashion and style
To end up on the last season aisle,
Discounted, up for grabs in less than half-price,
It will hit you like his last goodbye.
