Fading Allure


Body numb, feeling nothing but the warm tear dragging slowly down her face

Steady, light breaths fill her lungs with ample air

Knowing nothing in life comes easy, and that which does surrenders just as easily as its arrival

She lies on her back and wonders when it became this complicated

When happiness no longer meant a spritz of her favorite perfume, the subtlety of his hand brushing hers, and his smile, which she knew was only for her

She needs to find her way back into her feelings of yesterday

She needs to be reminded of the attraction she felt in the beginning

Hidden within her, if she could only find it


A puzzle with a missing piece



 And it kills me to see him and all of his simplicity standing before me

Tenacious to the slightest chance of hope, nails digging deep

Sinking slowly into unremitting pain

Feeling nothing, inordinately insane

As tears stream down his face

Here I sit, numbly with no feelings to trace

Darkness creeps around us

Submerging our bodies in a dense, cold air

Shadows form a mask, a partial disguise

Deeply he stares, he waits for my reply

An everlasting wait

For I have already said my goodbye.
