No angry blow ups….just cold silence….brutal honesty….the truth staring me in the eyes
I recognize this place...I’ve been here before…
I feel the shiver hit my spine as the time you spend away grows 
I find myself making mental excuses that excuse the absence I fill with others
Overnight we have become the world that we once fought so hard to keep outside our walls
Is this how love is supposed to be?
The nights grow cold….hands reach across the distance and return just as empty 
Sighs turn into grumbles...I stare angrily at the wall because it couldn’t keep you in...
then I remember how my mouth agreed that you should go
I hug myself….I need the contact...I am lonely though I hate to admit it
My love is slipping away & I was the 1 who gave it permission to go
