Factors of Living

I can feel the distance 

as it gnaws at 

my feet.

I can feel your gaze 

but I cannot find 

it within myself 

to turn around,

to find you there,

unable to voice a sound.

I can feel our love

now turning sour,

with each breath

of each hour;

I feel it beginning to fester

and burn,

a parasite within my veins.

I wonder, are we worth this pain?

Or are we simply meant to drown,

under the worlds rein?
