Unlove.

Unlove me.
Unlove you.
Why can’t we unlove we?

As if it were that easy.
So close, you were.
We was.
One.
Could feel the breath between us.
Could have kissed words and no one would have even noticed.
Invisible walls in tiny spaces.
Inches separated our worlds.
You didn’t pass the line.
You didn’t move.
Love used to live in that air between us.
In every breath.
Inhale.
Exhale.
Feel it.
Breathe it in.
Yet the air was so tight that night.
Dry heat.
Hot smokey air all around us.
Hard to breathe anymore.
One step.
One motion.
You could have and…
didn’t.
One more time for emphasis,
Actions explain…
As if the 180 plus sunsets didn’t already,
The sum of all fears.
Me.
You.
Separate.
Not equal.
Separate and alone.
One word, one gesture.
Something.
Say something.
Nothing.
Silent sadness.
Your eyes tell the story…
I still see you,
Even when you chose to stop seeing me.
Even when I flew away.
Now just left with…
Half ass hand shakes.
Fake hellos,
But real goodbyes.
Over and over.
That’s all we have, That’s all that remains of love.

Unlove me.
Unlove you.
Why can’t we unlove we?
