He looked inside…
Saw his cache
Of love was
Almost on empty

Till death do us part?
No longer to believe…
Or did they just
Start with empty tanks?

He knew it wasn’t
As it should be…
There always was
A distance…

From the start
It was always
“His fault”…that
He wanted more

How do you agree
When you’re always
Found “guilty”…
Of wanting love?

There’s now no
Going back…
And no reason to
Go forward…
The tank is empty

      Thank you, Suzanne. The idea was based on something in a book about the languages of love, if I remember correctly. Weird how almost anything can get words flowing…isn’t it?
