Your Face

 

Looking at your face

I know who you are

But there's nothing familiar

About the color in your eyes

 

I love you, "I think"

But, "I am not in love with you"

 

By the look on your face

You did not hear me

Your mouth keeps moving

Saying things I'm too tired to listen to

Again

I don't remember why we are together

Your phone keeps vibrating

I've grown used to it now

I say nothing as you twitch

To look at it

 

I see your face

My ears forcefully focus on your voice

As I peel my attention away from my book

I hear you tell me of

Your day

But your days are all the same

and you complain

             you complain

                          complain

 

Looking at your face

I remember why we are together

But the reasons land on a shipwrecked

Coast I hardly visit, and you completely dismiss.

Then I notice that you are still, your arms flat,

Your mouth isn't moving.

I hear a sound I recognize, clearly

a familiar voice resonates at the tip of my ears

Brushing your face and it changes

"It is over, I don't love you"
