We Were Just Leaving

This conversation:

It’s missing from your voice.

My sores are common enough to see,

You wash over me;

It’s in the way we talk

Or in the way we leave,

Like nothing matters.

 

This murmur:

It’s missing from your ears.

Just lean closer to me,

You might adore the sound

Or just forget to breathe;

We were just leaving.
