30/30 Day 1-Absence of Hearts

Absence of Hearts

Before, our love

Became inanimate

It had flickered, pulsed

Its own heart

Beating as we slowly

Danced across the floor

The light in our eyes

Lit every corner of the room

Leaving no room for doubt

After, our love

Became inanimate

Our hearts, clanging bells

Calling for each other

Absent our names

Only shadows filled the room

And doubt, positioned

In the middle of the floor

We knew how to sit

On opposite ends of the room

Inanimate expressions

With the absence of hearts
