Leap of Life

What leap of life has led us here
to this unseemly place;
to scrabble in the debris
of all that we once were?

Now your voice is flat and bored
where once it straddled high and low,
full of joy and interest
of all we shared together.

What would I give to jump through time
to twenty years ago,
to feel your warm hand in mine
and never want another.

Now the future seems a trial,
for us both to endure,
as love becomes elusive,
in joined entangled lives
