SILO

 Co-written by Myself & J  Matthew Waters

 

 

Are you jealous

Of the space between us

Filled with darkness

And twinkling stars

 

Bereft of passion

The green patina of sarcasm

Lobs my way

 

Have you forgotten

All those years

Reduced to a mere photograph

Safekept under glass

 

Encapsulated

In an unmanned

Underground

Silo

 

Why did you build that bomb

The one that divided us

A mushroom cloud of discontent

Hovering overhead

 

As our atom split

Turning two into too many nights

Alone and cold in the dark

I tried to seek a sign up above

Past an endless sky without light

 

Finally I ask myself am I the one

Am I jealous of the space between us

Of the fragile photograph kept under glass

 

Was it me who built that bomb

Did I hover in discontent

Watching as we split

Lonely in this silo in the dark
