Was There

Crystal clues of sunlit hues.
The light is everywhere.
Sound enhancing sight,
and so they stared.

They'd never really seen
each other just this way before.
And then they heard the
slamming of a door.

They couldn't find their way.
It was as if the storm had come
to stay this time around. The rhythm
and the rhyme they used to share
was lost for good.

Clarity - the crystal saw it all.
Images within the magic mirror.
Pretenses stripped of power.
The final hour now was nigh.
She heard it all within his silent sigh.

Quite suddenly, she knew
that there was nothing she could do
to bring his focus back to love again.
Quietly, she slipped away one day.
Return was not a question.

Crystal clues of sunlit hues.
The light is everywhere.
Sound enhancing sight,
the soul was there...
