Upside Down - Poem by Ilana Friedman

He talks, she's silent.
He smiles, and she frowns.

But she starts to cry as he walks away,
and realizes her whole world has been turned upside down.

As he stares at their picture,
he wonders what had gone wrong.

And meanwhile, she gets that you don't know how much
you really care until they're gone.

She stares at her glass trying to see it half full,
and he poured his out a few hours ago.

But as her racing mind thinks of his broken heart,
she wonders if they can go back to the start.

They wish for a start that would erase the end,
But are reluctant to go down that path again.

All they can do is hope for the best,
and believe that their love will take care of the rest.
