A silhouette invades my vision,
Nearly invisible but clearly there.
It’s mocking me with its secrecy
Sneakily stealing my attention…
Away from you.
Your outlines slowly disappear,
Melting in the corner of my eye.
Somewhen you will be gone forever
– The part of me I wish to keep –
Away from me.
We are standing still right here.
The smoke is wrapped around us
Leaving a distance growing between
Until we are lost and wandering…
Away from us.
