We sit in stone silence
while you consider your response
to the question of how long
you have felt your life was all wrong

How much of you is left
now that I have taken away your soul
leaving you thin and airy like a dead blossom
helpless in the wind

Living in the realization that being alone
is better than sitting in silence together
acceptance is all that I have
and all that I want – for now
