Don’t know how to tell you this.
If you don’t know how then just blurt it out like you usually do
See, we have been so close for so long
That’s an understatement. We’ve been married for twenty-two years
And in all that time I feel we’ve been growing apart
Not this again. What did you do this time?
That’s something I only would tell my friends
May your true self always be hidden from prying eyes
As you go about your daily life
Simplifies things like emotional attachments
Keeping everyone distant and you, safe.
So many distant suns twinkling as they watch from above
They escort the night across the sky
Arriving at the horizon to be relieved of their duty
Resting till called upon as their little sister fades to black
Silent sentries stoic in their duty
So much cutting in her past
Cuts that let blood and tears flow equally freely
All that was in the rear view mirror now
Rachel wore their history as a testament that there is a future
