We watched others

keep their flames awake

while losing track of our own

light as it slowly faded away. ‘This

was supposed to be easy,’ you sighed

as I pretended to be asleep. They

used to call us perfect, till

we let us depreciate.

  5. Nicely done. You’ve captured the sense of loss that creeps up undetected.
