Out of Sight, Out of Time

For all I think I've learned
of love
a forever unanswered question
what does it means when it comes from you?

Those words that once flowed easily
from your lips
now dammed somewhere beneath your larynx
in your time-honored farce
that silence drowns what's left unsaid

So, here we are
in the vortex
of our beautiful oblivion
those precious parts we chucked
into the jar
pressed puree without the lid on
splattering everything that ever mattered
with persistent stains

Author's Note
For Styxian: not sure how good a gift this is, but it's all I've got at the moment. :-)

Hat tip to Eve 6 for the heart in a blender imagery I bounced off of from their song "Inside Out"
