Indifferent eyes
Stare back into mine
Without care
A flicker of the past
Of once love
Now distance
Wide as the ocean
We've come so far
And now so far distant
What happened to this?
To us?
Where did we lose
Each other?
Our comfort
What of that?
Tension prevails
Can't be broken
Conversation?
Futile
It just falls off
Lapses into silence
And fades into nothing
It's falling apart
We're falling apart
This shell we hold
Fragile
Cracked
Can this be salvaged?
Or should it be left to
Crumble?
Falter?
And ultimately
Fail?
Is it time to let it fade
Move on slowly
Lingering
To the end
I'm waiting
Make the call
All is not lost
Yet...
