“Do you hear it – the cracking that’s happening inside my heart?
Can you smell it – the salty tears that are welling up behind my eyes?
Can you feel it – the withdrawal in my touch that hasn’t happened yet but it must?
Can you speak of it – the level of love that you are about to have lost?
Can you taste it – the hurt in my kiss that flavor of we must end this?
Can you stop all of this – or must I wish the only wish I could wish so you’ll hear, smell, taste and be able to feel and finally speak of what you are going to miss?
