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



In an unmanned




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
