When The Old Things Don’t Work Anymore

… it’s a sad day, indeed

The old jokes do not make him laugh
The old dress doesn’t make him look
The old him was all into her
The lapse of time was all it took

The vanity she entertained
The love she thought forever true
The hollowness we come to see
In who we are
And what
We do
