Extinguished

I'm at the end of my rope
Completely given up all hope
Think things will change? Nope.

Somewhere between love and lost
Is a hefty emotional cost
Where intimacy is shorn and that line is crossed.

Feelings extinguished by unrequited desire.
Yesterday too busy, today too tired.
By this point our drive has expired.

Now, instead, just a cohort in this path we walk.
Not sure if it's really anyone's fault.
But what once was 'us' has come to a halt.
