The Gypsy Passion For Parting!

The gypsy passion for parting!
Just met, and you’re ready to part!
I dropped my head in my hands and started
To think, staring into the dark:

From our letters, no one could gather
Any insight to understand more
How deceitful we were, or rather, -
How true to ourselves we were.

Marina Tsvetaeva ( 1892- 1941)
