Echoed Silence

An endless maze appeared. Still. Drunk. Motionless.

I started calling her with a voice quickly taken by the cruel wind.

My soul reverberates,  aching while I reached out— a strand of her hair, a touch of her scent.

I walked aimlessly, my heart hoped for a glimpse of her figure.

Darkness ensued, and still there I was,  lost in my own footsteps.

Under the comfort of the unsympathetic moon, I opened my tear drenched eyes.

She was gone, probably forever.

Run Away.

Come take my hand.

We’re inches away, several miles apart.

Just a little closer. Just a bit more.

You tear up on cue, with a wary soul.

Clouded judgement, forgotten memories.

We promised forever,  minds at war.

A love of a lifetime.

Where did we go wrong?

Shards of glass broken, as still as the moonlight.

And now, a fleeting glimpse of goodbye.
