Prompt 7 Normal… Is this how it’s now going to be?

looking in but you’ve closed the door

memories of how it used to be hang above like darkened clouds

I have no choice but

to step back

and wait it out

Is this how it’s now going to be?

I fix my mask and stifle a cough

I sanitize my hands before

fingers can even think to brush away a tear

Is this how it’s now going to be?

swarms of soulless eyes silently crying inside

the language of touch forsaken

gathering as one… a sin

how I long to greet you

but is this how it’s now going to be?

I should have held on tighter to yesterday

but didn’t see this coming

didn’t see the door closing on what we once had

some say we’ve found a way to get back

but will it ever be the same?

will it ever be normal? at least the memory of what it was?

Perfection it was not

but just to touch and laugh and hold and shed these masks to reveal your smile

indeed that would be just enough
