affectionate, attentive, thoughtful eyes;
instead, an expressionless, invisible, blank stare.
No longer strolling hand-in-hand,
instead, walking moonbeams apart, drifting like clouds.
No longer drowning in passionate, lingering
instead, an obligatory, awkward, fleeting peck.
No longer two hearts bow-tied with
instead, reclusive, lonely hearts, in a noose.
No longer dreaming of a lifetime
instead, an uncertain, somber, painful future.
No longer a confident, loving
instead, a heartsick, lonely, aging woman,
Desperately, afraid of losing you.
