Take A Step Back


Your silence shreds my nerves
I see our relationship scattering
like the confetti
they threw at our wedding
My confidence disintegrates
the way the fireworks
you surprised me with
faded after lighting up the sky
My anger is insignificant
my tears are irrelevant
Our strained bond a black hole
that threatens to swallow me

Perhaps I should step back
put some distance between us
Then we will know
if the chasm can be bridged
