Your smile never
opened anything,
and my words never
found a home.
The cold, trembling ice-bridge
shattered too quickly, too long ago,
leaving empty laughter ringing
through this chasm
deep with soul-silence.
We circle, eyeing warily,
two fortresses around our hearts.
We smile, we talk, we laugh--
and we are lonely,
so lonely.
