Drifting

I didn’t see, I never heard
The silences lengthen.
I never noticed that you had drifted
From out of my embrace.

I never missed your gentle caress.
I never stopped to consider,
I never stopped to just care.

When did we stop dreaming together,
When did I start building walls.
I didn’t see, I never heard
Until I heard the slamming door.

    1. Thank you Jessica. I think it was about an hour before I posted this piece that you posted your beautiful piece of the same name.
      It shows that there is always someone else in this world that can empathise with any situation.
