there was nothing else but us

you melt
into the edges of desks,
slip into the spaces between
your consciousness

you are
beautiful because you can believe,
and you have someone to believe in,
until it took it all away.

you used
to be vibrant, outstanding,
and now you seem to never be there
at all, you just disappear.

and i 
was different with my laughter
and the way i smiled 
without really feeling happy at all.

you were
everything to me
until you extracted yourself
from our equation,
ignored the walls we had built around ourselves,
created new masks,
ones that you wouldn't let me see past.

and i
cannot help you
unless you let me

and you
have not let me help you
in a very long time.

The End
