Staring blank-faced at each other
From across the room
The space between us, a few feet,
Feels as a thousand miles now
The tears tore through the facade
That we wore for so long
Telling ourselves “we’re ok”
We were dead long ago
We were only being buried now.
How did we get here?
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
This is a piece inspired by a heartbreak in my life, I’m sure many can relate. We always find ourselves asking that haunting question, “How did we get here?”
