and even then
   you didn't answer me
only looked away
as if the sun didn't shine
   only clouds were visible that day

and you looked at me sideways
   as if to say

it's over

though my reply to you was

it never really began

Then it makes starting over pretty hard don't ya' think. You make brevity so admirable! I like that about you.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

these lines:

and even then
   you didn't answer me
only looked away


are amazingly gripping. the usage of all lowercase is so sudden, like interupting a conversation, or turning on a radio mid sentence that you focus in on what is being said to try and piece together what might have come before.

excellent.

Nod. I had to look for this one, and I really wish I had told her how well done I thought this was...

sigh
