Cement

Laying down the foundation
Picked out the drapes to match the curtains
Followed through on a promise
Of a brighter tomorrow

The sun rose and we walked
A mile round trip
Half way across a bridge we paused
Only long enough
to snap a photo
Through the branches

For a moment the conversation paused
And
The words no longer held the
Weight
Waiting in time they fall forward
Spilling out into the world
Filling all the cracks and crevices
