Poetry Corner

~

It was quietly —
like the soft falling of snow
on a winter’s eve,
like an autumn’s leaf
gently detaching itself
from the branch
of a tree —
quietly, so quietly,
did you fall
out of love with me,
so silently that
I barely noticed
until it
was there,
an unavoidable sign
in neon lights
before my eyes,
or maybe
I watched it unfold
yet pretended
not to see.
