Poem: The Situation as it Stands

Two packets of sugar sit between us
Coffee gone cold like the conversation 
Neither raising what we need to discuss
Each being held back by reservation 
This an unfamiliar hesitation
When we loved each other we loved freely
As others wishing they could ideally 
Now we turn to silently cold staring
We must confront what it is really
Strangers drifting apart without caring 

A Dizain poem from a prompt at Go Dog Go Café following the format of

One 10-line stanza
10 syllables per line
Employs the following rhyme scheme: ababbccdcd
