lately there has been a reservoir between usMature

Lately there has been a reservoir between us, there has been hesitation on your lips, there has been a hollowness in my ribs.  I am alone and not alone at the same time, you are both here and absent; we are neither and we are both.  The light pools in through the window and we watch it, sometimes I think for days on end, never moving, never blinking or speaking or feeling, just watching the dawn creep over the windowsill to spill hazy afternoon light onto the carpet until the white wine glow of dusk washes it all away before the night settles in.  I could spend my life in these forever quiets, collecting shards of sunlight and dust motes like snowflakes on my eyelashes.

The End
