I wish I could go back
to the days you used to try to keep me
when you wanted me close to you
and couldn't get enough of me
When our warmth and love
was all we needed to live
you used to cross rivers and mountains to see me
Now you slip into a chosen loneliness
away as far as you can get from me
you push me into uncomfortable silence
where I can't say or do anything to or for you
you don't want it.
You cross rivers to put the water between us
and build mountains I can't cross
Aren't you cold? no.
But you've frozen me in the silent ice of bitter loneliness
