A discreet meeting in a nondescript bar, two lovers seek a conclusion to a story that stole their hearts.  The glass holds sparkling tears that she refuses to shed. She swallows them down after toasting the demise of a dream they attempted to share. His lips linger on her skin, as he fights the memories and desire of her taste, much sweeter.  The smiles are forced and the words are empty, but their eyes reveal the truths they refuse to endure.
