A Different Face

How could your paradigm shift so much?
As to throw me all the way off.
Maybe I just tripped and fell
Or maybe
Someone else bumped into it
And knocked me off
And your hand
Was too busy in his
To help me back up

It seems it tilted
All the way
To show another side
Of you
One that I hardly recognize
Though I knew your
I mean “its”
Face better than anyone

I could read your face
Like a book
But perhaps
Having not seen it
In so very long
I've forgotten the words
To my favorite story

The author's comments:
I decided to revisit and flesh out the poems from my work "Paragon." I ask you to read that as well, as it gets the original meaning better.
