NaPoWriMo Day 10

And we're into double figures! Admittedly, I'm a little behind on finishing and posting responses to some previous days prompts - day 8, 9 and 3 to follow - but here we are. For today's prompt, a poem on the theme of 'unlove'. Not hate, but a dislike, or, for me, an ending of love. Here's my poem:


Unlove

A disappearance,
A lessening,
Slowly, gradually,
Distance growing.

Pauses in conversation
That used to last all night.
A lack of thought,
That used to be every waking moment.

Excuses found to spend time apart.
Hugs and kisses, no longer
The first thing in the morning,
Or the last at night.

They call it an unlove,
A separation of two
Former halves,
Back to their original, individual, selves.
