It never seemed to matter much
That quirky look he used to get
Anytime,
He was amused
One dark eyebrow sharpened and raised
Hinting of all the secrets he knew
The laugh that drove me crazy
Outrageously silent
As he hissed into convulsions
I miss it now…
How funny he used to be, yet
How strange I stopped noticing
What happened?
I wonder now…. Did he also
Forget, the things he loved about me
My eyes that sparkle with each giggle
Or the warmth of my mouth
When I would comfort him
From an exhausting day
Together we grew from  
Adoring  
One another, to
Detesting each little habit
The serious banter,
The ugly striped shirts,
My sweat pants ripped and colored
With paint;
The tangled sheets beneath me, as he
Lay cold asleep clutching to what little  
Blanket he could get
Now my bed abandoned by love
Made neatly with newly washed sheets
Stares unemotionally at me  
As I sit delicately
On my side.
My side? How funny that I should have one now.

Well done, the inner termoil of a long relationships fading.  Interesting how the habit of sleeping on one side remains after the love is gone.  I enjoyed this.  Welcome to Passions!
