“After All”

After all we shared
tomorrow is another day to withdraw into our shells.
After all we lived
tomorrow is another day to be absent.
After all we learned.
tomorrow is another day to delve into forgetting.

Staring at a photo
I don’t even remember
who these two people are
who were once one breath
one heartbeat
one life.

After all we loved
tomorrow is another day to foster indifference.
After all we gave
tomorrow is another day to take back what is ours.
After all we wanted
tomorrow is another day to lose all interest.
