And so we’ve

Turned that corner

From leaf to

Fall from lover

To friend from

Important to convenient

What was once

A priority has

Now become normal

But a bland

Tepid normal like

A cooling cup

Of coffee still

Packing its punch

But lacking heat

So many times

Before have i

Rowed these streams

That first rapids

Then dump into

A lake of

Complacency fine we’ll

Be the embers

Of friendship no

Longer stoking the

Flames of desire
