A Difficult Separation

How can we say that we still love each other
When we selfishly went the opposite ways?
You took the freeway and I, the skyways
How can we say that we care for each other
When we no longer snore under the same roof?

We don’t know where we slept last night
We have no idea if one lied down on the right
Or the other on the left side that is aloof.

Our depraved children are scared and confused
We don’t know how to humanely explained
The logarithmic formula that we diffused
Haphazardly when the in-laws complained
About the crickets that became bitterly aloud.

These days, we are neither happy nor proud.

How can we say that we blindly love each other
When we both agreed to go our separate ways?
How can we frankly care for each other
When we both abandoned the gourmet food on the trays?

The feelings are strange, unusual and compressed
The plants and the flowers are no longer natural
Our children looked sad, desperate and depressed
Amidst this mess though we tried to remain cordial.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
