Bruised Ego

we’re losing one another
you and i
fading day by day
in the fog of complacency
in the wake of miscommunication
budding excitement fades
with every assumption made
every “taken for granted” task
once insignificant
now deafening in its destructive strength
i watch us drift apart
grain by grain
like the tides separating the sea from the sands
i listen to the silent resentment
festering below the surface of what should be love
the current pulling me beneath the glassy mirror
of helplessness
drowning me in sorrow
suffocating me
rather than keeping me buoyant on life’s waves
once fun to jump
now just pounding wrath into the stormy eye of my heart
i feel our departure
soul to soul
fear creeping in more days than not
knowing this is how people lose one another
yet paralysed
and unable to stop it

Artist's Description

how do you watch something die
how are you helpless to prevent it

how does what you never thought you’d lose
slip through your fingertips
in front of your very eyes

how do you hold on steadfast
to the quicksand of love
without drowning in its murky depth?
