…ever after


A virtual distance was created;

Miles and continents apart,

By the icy tones of his voice,

By her impregnated silence…


Like a huge, invisible mountain,

The barrier between them grew

As he persisted on his choice

And she found sanctuary in absence…


Their bodies lay close together,

Their souls, light years apart,

When he forgot he loved her

And she let her pride take over…


And that was how they lived;

Unhappily ever after,

With memories now a blur

And the future far from over…
