Don’t say a word.
hinges of your perfectly shaped mouth
but I don’t want those teary words
Hug me,
just don’t promise
everything will be alright.
I lied
when I said I want you
to tell me what I want to hear –
I don’t really want to listen
to the vacant efforts
that we made once.
Our love is a sad slow dance
in an empty house,
where we twirl each other
towards a cold standstill
of the end.

  1. ‘Our love is a sad slow dance
    in an empty house…’

    Your words are cold & heartbreaking, yet sear with your own brand of Owl heat…wonderfully done, as usual… πŸ™‚

    1. Im so surprised so many people commented on these particular lines… I guess sometimes i hit he right note with my words, huh? πŸ˜‰

    1. So glad you liked it! I tried to portray the coldness of the dying love and im so happy that you thought those last lines were good enough to describe it! πŸ™‚
