Res ipsa loquitur

Staring out these old windows

Past the dilapidating barrier walls

I recall some past moments of love

That filled and warmed every room

.

Before this fogyish cold came on

Before an eerie silence had replaced

Laughter’s that spoke in volumes

Oh! How consistent time changes

.

A path we all seem obliged to follow

My inner nature seems more like dust

Remaining here amongst their shadows  

A sentinel upholding his own promise

.

This is just a shelter, far from a home   

Where but a fading heart exist … alone

    1. Thank you. I find, its oft only one side is really in love while the other party in more in love with the idea- of being in love with someone, they later discover, doesn’t appeal to their notion or heart anymore.

      1. You are correct. I think in every relationship, one loves more than the other. I have rarely seen a couple equally enamored. I have landed on both sides of that particular coin, and wasn’t happy either way.
