Fade to Blue - Lost in the Sky

by Larry Chamberlin   Jun 12, 2018

You never walked out on me
stayed in the very next room
still we lost sight each the other
with a quiet like unto the tomb.

How two people will drift apart
is not new in this world of woe
yet remains a great mystery
that you don’t even see them go.

    There is a genuine and unsettling sadness to this piece, Larry, not least because of how many people succumb to this deadly and silent assassin.
