by Kristabella

this is where it ends
no fireworks
no thunder
just a silence
growing between us like a cancer
a frozen chasm
not hatred but  indifference
cold and clear eyed
wrapping itself around my heart
icy fingered along my skin
everything ends
in the cold silence
the darkness
last rites
moving on
everything ends
in silence.
