IN BETWEEN THE LINES

Woke up again this morning
afraid to open my eyes
As you prepare for an early
departure a piece of me silently
dies; I want  to say I love you
but from hurt only raw emotion
abides ; another day wasted
and as always love gets
denied.........

knowing that very instant
what lies ahead for me
in these already dark and sullen skies.

Everyday is similar you are
distant so am I but that happens
with us almost every time.

It's easy to make me happy
if you were  willing to try but instead
of caring for me you rebuke
poke and pry making me resent
and hate myself for perpetuating
this lie.

Can't imagine a conversation
where we could ever see eye to eye
in a perfect world we'd embrace one
another but instead our worlds collide.

Tragic and never ending days turn into
nights where a cold sudden distance
is what traps us inside.

You go your way I go mine never
finding a common ground to let the error
of our ways and pain subside.
