We can't exchange smiles

or the word yes anymore


this isn't just a one-off repairable thing

it is one of many things

that have lost their once bright colours

to the supremacy of darkness


the coldness of your heart

has now found its way to all I can see before me

there is nothing but the look of nothing in your eyes

any desire you had for me has fallen by the wayside


I cannot spit out this taste of evolving bitterness

I am being made to swallow it down to the last tear

until all of what we were has disappeared


but there is something precious of mine

you have never recognised that I have left

inside your dying world of love

and as much as I would like it back

I shall leave it where it is as a parting gift

wrapped in my unloved sincerity


tomorrow I shall wake up on the first empty day

of so many to follow

every road back to you has gone

my only travelling companions now

are sorrow damaged memories

leading me to a world where the light of my life

has been extinguished
