Growing Silence

Growing silence separates,
only habit still relates
in a bond of trials shared.
Seems they never really cared.
Empty longing infiltrates.

They’re imprisoned by the fates,
every choice, the past dictates
and the future has them scared.
Growing silence.

Feigning, neither hesitates,
separately, each meditates,
contemplates steps never dared,
yearning, scorning to be spared.
Recognises and awaits
growing silence.

Growing silence separates,
only habit still relates
in a bond of trials shared.
Seems they never really cared.
Empty longing infiltrates.
