Why are we like this?

Our familiarity has vanished

Withering without commitment

Return to me, remember us

Absence changes perception

These weeds of doubt have spread

We’re now cold to each other’s touch

A false couple being advertised

Disconnect this heart

Refuse my humanity

Leftover pains of passion arise

Always wounded without weapons

Word gets out, time to define

The press conference for us begins

A dinner for two that everyone attended

Curiosity devours their compassion

Our straps unbuckled, the ride is over

Two strangers get off, separate exits for us both

A breathless love that finally suffocated

We are one no more
