it was so cold that monday morning
i left before dawn
for i hadnt slept that night
the drive to your house tainted
never before an unpleasant experience
creeping to your window
reminiscent of when we were young
it wasnt so long ago
now the purpose is not so innocent
quietly we leave your house
hoping to go undiscovered
again i drive, we drive
our destination certain
the silence defeaning
screaming inside
so much to say
i want to grab you
console you
im sorry, im sorry
nothing but breath emits
even that is forced
we arrive
oh how did we arrive here
im sorry
anticipating dread
as they take you away
you, as i know you, will never return
i watch you drift down the corridor
now the linoleum under your feet is your only support
i wait
left alone with time
i age more in these few hours than in all of my few years of life
trying to justify
trying to reason
as a part of me dies
still screaming inside
its over now
now its just begun
leaving
searching for words than can never be found
i leave her at home
all alone, she is no longer a stranger to it
i am empty inside
she too, in may ways
cold to my touch
what have we done
this is our secret
we can never tell
just the three of us

Wow. I would love to hear the story behind such a powerful piece. Such a twist at the end...I love it.

I think I know what this piece is about, but I dare not show my ignorance (or arrogance)
and say it- but I have to say...excellent poem. So truthful- it hurts.
Bravo.

And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda
