Separate Worlds

Once, all was

perfect...

Now, we're living

in separate worlds...

We shared a bond that even

we could never comprehend.

It seemed beyond words.

The way we laughed and cried,

it was as if we had truly been

together for eternity, and would

be for much longer.

Once, all was

perfect...

Now, we're living

in separate worlds...

What happened,

is what I want to know.

We used to be so close,

how could we have drifted apart?

Forever, we said,

Forever, we thought,

and although we're still here,

the closeness is gone.

Once, all was

perfect...

Now, we're living

in separate worlds...

Have we lost trust?

Was it all a dream?

I wish I knew.

Somehow, we're apart.

What tore us away

from each other..?

Our lives? Fate?

Did we go wrong somewhere?

Once, all was

perfect...

Now, we're living

in separate worlds...

Questions fill my mind;

you and I, we were special.

We understood each other.

Now it's all up in smoke.

It's almost as though we're

strangers, or mere friends just met.

Have we lost each other already, or

is this just an agonising phase?

I need to know.

Once, all was

perfect...

Now, we're living

in separate worlds...
