Face to Face

 

I stand staring

face to face with her.

Took me a long time to get here

Now I just stare

 

Dumbstruck by the emptiness I see in her eyes

shallowness behind her smile

heart hardened with walls all around

words dripping with ice

 

Surrounded by darkness

inside and out

captured by responsibility

caged by contentment

bound in chains

of lovelessness and resentment

 

I wipe away the tears

as it clouds the vision before me

I had to face her some time

the person I use to be
