What Do We Look Up To Them As?

Who am I kidding?
they were already split 

Love gone a decade ago
but marriage somehow stuck
between the routine
and co-dependance
the need 

We never looked up to them as parents
but as lovers
but now
not even lovers
so what’s left? 

what do we look up to them as?
They’ve turned into two sacks of bones wandering around
without each other
forcibly independent

what do we look up to them as? 

Hollow cheekbones
sunken in eye sockets
the same exact miserable look
just different skin tones
just different houses 

what do we look up to them as
