The Issue

Do you ever stop to think
How you make me  feel
When I’m near you?

Do you  ever remember or  reflect
On the way we were
When  love was new?

Once upon a time,
You couldn’t wait to see me.
I couldn’t wait to be with you.

Where once  there showed sweet affection,
Now all I see is irritation.
Never  empathy.

Once, nothing else mattered,
No one else existed.
                   Our world held nothing but  you and  me.
