My Broken Heart

We are barely afloat now,
just going through
the motions of romance.

This love is drowning,
ever slowly;
your affections distant
as the shore.

We’re taking on water
through the gaps
that came between us.

This sinking ship
will go under soon
because the fissures
are beyond repair.
