A poem about alienation and love.

Sometimes after all of the acrimony,

misunderstanding, alienation, trauma

after the solitude sets in


all that is left is the underlying love

commitment, bond, history of sharing

laughter together


All that is left is the wordless feeling

the desolation and fear that accompanies

the severing of a bond


no matter how long or short

the severing is hard so hard to take

but you hang on


You reach out again

because of the wordless love

that will never go away


never, even for eternity

such a deep love


will never disappear

into the void
