J and A

the two of you
you trying so hard
and her rebuffs.

She shrinks from your touch
you shrink from the world.
I fell in love
with what you became to eachother
with what your love made the other.

That love fades fast
you both cling to the past
for purely sentimental reasons
it fades into the days.

the two of you
limp along on memories
crying and forgiving, this saga ending
I think it hurts me the most.
