we rush
in opposite directions.
speeding bodies of light.
we are
a temporary part,
of this temporary life.
i am
a muffled voice
in an vacant room.
you are
an empty promise.
one thousand "i love you's".

i've taken endless snapshots,
painted portraits on walls,
of your lips,
while you are smiling.
all the rises
and the falls.
this is day to day detachment.
let my open mouth speaks lies.
slowing heart a steady rhythm,
as it whispers "you'll survive".
still i let my head fall forward.
tune out.
tune out.
