Semblance

It’s the idea of each other we love,
the manicured lawn, the mortgage paid,
clear skinned children and a table well laid.
Not this messy evening with us unable
to communicate our disappointment,
or forgiveness, silent even the will to relent.
Another night spent at opposite ends
of a house too big – empty of family, empty of friends.
