When

How long ago

Was it,

Exactly,

When you

Stopped

Feeling

Like trying?

When

Did it become

Acceptable

To be

Unfeeling

And distant?

When did

Two beds

Become

Better

Than one?

When

Did the space

Between us

Begin to feel

Better

Than

The feel

Of our bodies

Touching,

Wrapped around each other,

And breathless?

Just so you know,

That never happened

For me-

I still ache

For what you

Abandoned

Long ago.

The memories

Are

Less sweet

Now,

And more painful,

Which seems the worst

Betrayal of them-

The worst betrayal

Of us.
