Jaded Silence

covered by a gray skyA Gray Sky
sitting side by side
words left unspoken
thoughts left unsaid
love is unconsummated

behind an invisible mountain
standing side by sideAn Invisible Mountain
promises are unmet
hopes are uncertain
destiny is unfulfilled

beyond the physical world
swirling in the slipstreamJaded Silence
moments slowly pass
quietly slipping away
as our time fades
like many others
we live in
jaded silence
