Zone d'ombre

You felt it
So did I
We both know what it was
A sound that isn’t heard 
Signals the end of love

A mating call reversed
Coupling undone
A sound that isn’t heard
That says we’re not in love

A note that speaks of emptiness
Like an abandoned home
Not of an open spaciousness
But something there, then gone

With each two, it is different
Never twice the same
But clearly recognizable
When it strikes again

A knell of such finality
A whole that’s torn apart
The only way you hear it
Is by silence in your heart
