We all feel lonely like night

Countertops like held hands
support slowly separated spaces
pulling away from unkept passion
your lips speak loves last grace

Has desire ever been so elusive?
she dances in my fireplace
she drips from my shower-head
only to fall into ashes
and retreat from my lonesome bed

her touch like moments past 
is color fading from my face
what once was there is gone
moving farther
from the home i must dwell

Decorations cover
the hole in my wall
filled with hollow expectations
the furniture like pressed bodies
warms icy abandonment
my floor is our humanity
and my countertops
our innocent attempt at nirvana
