Has my smile crossed your path?
I must have lost it down some long avenue
And grown acquainted with this seering guilt instead
Where have the memories flown off to?
I think I may have pushed the wrong lever
And flushed them down the drain by mistake
Where is the passion gone?
The light that used to reside in my eyes
But that has now packed its bags
And left me for another’s
Where have the shards of you gone?
Those split pieces of mirrored glass
That used to pain me in your presence?
For fear that the proximity
Shattered some essential rule
The unspoken agreement that leaves us
Chasing one star and not the entire sky
