“If he’s truly out of sight, is he truly out of mind”…

She says that he has changed…
But can’t really define how…
Says he is so very different…
From what he was, to now…

Still with the same face…
And carrying the same name…
But something is now missing…
It no longer feels the same…

Says she feels the difference…
From the man she used to speak to…
And the smile when he sees her…
Is now easy to see through…

As she searchs for hidden meanings…
In his words and his actions…
Which leaves him feeling defensive…
And looking for other distractions…

So she’s now closed her eyes…
As it all feels so painful, so cold…
And closing up her ears…
Refusing to believe, whatever she’s told…

Instead choosing to attack…
Through anger and frustration…
And though time and space surrounds…
There’s little hope of salvation…

As no matter what he says…
Or how he tries to defend…
She doesn’t hear him like before…
And it looks like it’s the end…

So he quietly walked away…
With a bruised and confused head…
Never quite understanding…
Or agreeing with what’s said…

Just retreating to the shadows…
Back where he belongs…
Between the light and the dark…
Dodging the right and the wrong…

As she has really changed him…
But he could never define how…
He just feels so very different…
From what he was, to now…

  2. Don’t retreat, J! LOL!

    I think anyone that has experienced love truly does knows it.The question ALWAYS IS….are we willing to take the leap of faith? In the world today we seem to get so confused as to what TRUE LOVE is. Love of an UNCONDITIONAL kind is what I feel is the purest.And those that we have had the privilege of experiencing such love with, I guess have challenged us, to either change (for the good) or not…with compromises.

    I definitely have had my share.But there is always that one person that you know…for certain….that has changed your life forever, for the good…and made you better…:-)

    Now this was a bit longer of a response than I expected…sorry about that! Cheers, J….to another soul bearing and soul searching piece of art.
