A splatter on the pavement
Abstract with shades of blue
My heart engulfed with feelings
Though nothing I can do.

Time passes in an instant
The noise inside my head
Echoes in a chamber
The things you once had said.

Believing every promise
No intention to fulfill
Left alone, bewildered
Loss of faith, a loss of will.

A random chance encounter
A glimpse at what could be
The threads in close alignment
Two ships collide at sea.

The smoldering of ashes
The last remnant left behind
You start anew recharged and free
Could I have been so blind?

No looking back for answers
Forgotten, you’ve moved on
No need for painful closure
Replaying what went wrong.

A picture perfect portrait
Enclosed by shards of glass
A feral, cold reminder
Of love that didn’t last.
