Never very close

they're even farther apart now

She looks at him

tears filling her eyes

He seems so distant

The damage has been done

Words have been yelled

Papers litter the floor

thrown there in anger

Piercing pain with every breath

Screen door broken

They can't change what happened

Things will never be the same

The subject of their fight is so trivial

yet it was so intense

That's the story of their lives
