Giving up

first of all, I would like to apologize because all I have been updating lately are poems. Well, you can't control when inspiration strikes and there's no harm in sharing, right? so be it.

Missed calls and unreplied texts,
I see no point in trying anymore,
we're doomed to take different paths,
we'll never be like we were before.

Unspoken feelings and unanswered questions,
Both of us had chosen silence,
but none has heard enough,
to speak and listen would be tough.

Torn pictures and broken promises,
we both gave up on each other,
memories remain, as well as the pain,
will this go on forever?

----------------------------------------------------------

Well, this poem is about the time when a relationship isn't going well and seemingly, the couple had given up on each other.
stanza 1: it's about parting. Parting from each other, and the fact that they can never be happy together as they were again. 
stanza 2: Both want answers but both choose to be silent as a careful step to not get hurt again. It's too big of a risk, so they think it's best to not speak anymore.
stanza 3: deep inside, they will always remember each other and the question 'will this go on forever?' is actually a question of hope. Deeper inside they wish they can be as they were before. They wish they didn't have to take different paths.
