From love to nothing 21015

.

I do not recall the moment

The shift in feeling

From love to nothing

From excitement and anticipation

To no sense

.

Nor what event or action caused such change

A switch switched off silently

A light that goes out

And turning away from

But towards nowhere and no one

.

I do not know what to say or do

(Everything is the same as ever)

How to create new life without a care

To breach a gulf of non-misunderstanding

For a tide to rise again for the first time

.

And carry me

And you

To warmth

And purpose

I will
