You fade away a little more every day.

What was, what used to be. Natural smiles

replaced with painted lies. What happened to

us? How did we get here? Avoiding confrontation

till it became our relationship. Years later,

remnants of you linger on. A picture

collecting dust in some corner

of my memory.
