cues

your eyes squinted when you told me,
everything is okay
never dropped a contact
but your stare lingered an indescribable cold
made you not notice
the last shirt you gave meyour shoulders so uptight
slowly moving closer to each other
hiding you from something only you knew
even sense the vibrations of your gentle stomps
as it sang an intolerable rhythm on the floor
it was just then when you pulled out a stick
and held it between your shivering fingers
that i have finally felt your cues
as words carried by soft tones
came out from your burning lips
one at a time,
telling me how beautiful everything was
and how priceless that moment could be



all i could hear was


only silence




how come it never went across?
how it never felt the way they used to be?
how everything was just subtly different


but it was when you stood up,
faced your back at me
and effortlessly dropped your shoulders,
that i have completely realized

that everything was already indeed over

All the cues give you hints, but the silence says it all.

It's maddening.

I am going through something similar. ♥

Even if the veracity of it faces us head on, we choose to deny, ignore. Suspending that pain as long as we can. Only up to when it becomes undeniable. Absolute.

But to acknowledge can be uplifting. Because to acknowledge is to accept. And by the act of conceding to reality are afforded the chance to process it, emotions and all.

Then, you realize, life goes on. It has to.
