Res ipsa loquitur

Photo by Norbert Kundrak on

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.
