The Fracture


He disappeared a moment and she wondered where he went.

Where there was once animation, a blank stare now took residence.

His gaze fastened somewhere in the distance

as if expecting someone to come walking over the horizon.

That is when she saw the man she knew dissolve away

and in the rolling mist

now rising in his eyes like storm clouds,

something else emerged.

No one tells a person how to deal with a moment like this.

I’m not sure you could.

She braced herself for the unknown.

As did he.
