You Like An Unfinished Business

you like it
when it is not yet finished

life like
like life perhaps you like it before it ends

perhaps at the middle when you smile
and then you stop it short
when the cold air comes to touch your brows

you like an unfinished journey
before you reach a certain home of old pictures

i paint a path and you like it when it is just near a river
which we are about to cross

you like it when i touch your lips
and then i leave without letting you taste the kiss

i understand how painful endings are
like departures

you like an unfinished business
perhaps because you like someone to come back to you
and give you
forever.
