With the former and of the latter

With the former and of the latterUnexpected
to my life
came our time
where numbers in
the canon of love
of the people I knew
far surpassed those
of the people I know.

Beyond the grace
of melancholy,

I am still possessed
 by my personal union
with the former
and of the latter.

Now I near the end
of crossing our
decades together,
emotionally,
sustained,
within 
both.

And yet,
in my deepest sorrows,
with head in hands,
forever and always
separated from each.
