“is this just it?”

Tears turn to

cannot be bothered

by your silly


A forgotten article

of their clothing

finds its way

into the Goodwill bin

without a thought:

Owed money

becomes a write off.

The ability to conjure

dopaminergic joy

needs more

and more

coaxing. And

your definition of love

evolves into something

you once thought sad

and slightly depressive,

but now it provides

a similar relief

as cancelled plans.
