The truth is, the opposite of love isn't hate. It's apathy and we all fear that to the point of being willing to poke that sleeping giant to feel something, anything other than admitting there is nothing left.

Her words painted a blank canvas of solicitude


Under white skies further lies were hidden


and I could never tell where the past ended nor a future be


Or if deception relinquished so truth could see


She said, "We're all going to die I do believe"


And I knew she was right.  Already dead t'was me


She wanted me to feel her apathy, but to care would be contradictory


So we swam those tepid waters deaf to a consciences


Was it life we avoided or the loss of our dream


A death resembling her lack of faith not only in life or love it seems


but me...
