Silent Rending

by Jaydon Cole

Eyes glazed in apathetic admiration,
We were always fond of staring.
Your eyes on mine
And mine,
Eventually circling back to meet with yours.
We smiled as we raised another toast
To the yesterdays loved and
To attempted contentment for tomorrow,
And to all the words we'll forget
When we finally make our ways back home
To arms less comfortable than today's.

Hands locked in unity,
We were always fond of touching.
Your hand in mine
And mine,
Reaching out,
Finally coming back to settle into yours.
I smiled as I raised my beer
And chocked a silent laugh at a
Tear that trickled from your eye,
Knowing that in just one word I could
Save you from every one of your fears
And from every painful goodbye.


Author's Note: After being blocked for about a year, this seems to be the best I can do... it's a start I suppose.

It certainly is a start...I'd like to see it go through all of the senses though, to come full circle...
