Shrouded



You saw my pain
Yet failed to sway my way
The tears that trickle down my face
Left stained a sorrows trace
Words can never replace
The hurt from an absent embrace

You saw my pain
Yet failed to sway my way
As my outstretched arms take aim
Further distant you became
As did the sun and moon in shame
Left my will tattered and lame

You saw my pain
Yet failed to sway my way
Up I sit in the middle of the night
Drained from an endless fight
That shades the hope of light
Even words fail as I write

You saw my pain
Yet failed to sway my way
Bag packed with just a few
Time apart to weigh the future of two
Leaving with the morning dew
As you sleep, I’ll whisper, I love you

I saw your pain
Yet failed to sway your way
When silence becomes the norm
Affection is barely lukewarm
Once it came in a swarm
Preparing for the brooding storm

I saw your pain
Yet failed to sway your way
Difference of opinion stalls
The forward march to arms, calls
No ground taken nor scaling walls
Not a crumb given, none falls

I saw your pain
Yet failed to sway your way
The constant frown worn every day
A beautiful smile, once was gay
That loving feeling went astray
Lost along the many yesterday’s

I saw your pain
Yet failed to sway your way
Turn to leave, I wonder
Should I turn back and love her
On my knees like a beggar
She’s probably deep in slumber

Ax

One never knows…
