Then and now

Not much left to talk to
Who knows what will happen now?
Is it me or you or both?
Evening splits into select two.

Lingering behind
The look of a frozen night
A little insecure,
In the softest silver light.

Altering the pieces of fun-cubes,
My responses have ended.
You said in silence,
Only Caged and sadly tamed.

The tired, wounded moon
Sailed over the pools,
Filled with images were
The distant shining lagoon.

My eyes looked into yours
Where tear dripping rain,
In the illusion of grey clouds
Was it really now or then?
