Isolation

It was a little thing, at first, That hurt our foolish pride. But, soon, it grew To enormous size, ‘Til we no longer heard The words of regret. The silence formed a chasm Far too great For us to cross. So, we sat in loneliness And watched the isolation That took place.

    I can go in many directions with this poem.Very well done.I have images of a small argument escalating to a full out war and then the aftermath.I also feel like it could be something personal between two loved ones and it ends in a very sad way.Again,well done!
