Curiosity peaked
When our eyes met

Love erupted
When our hearts connected

Trust became an issue
Because of the past

Control became a problem
Because things became uncontrollable

Communication was put on mute
When we stopped listening

And growth was stunted
When we stopped building

Hope was lost
After we spoke out in anger
Calling each other names we weren’t named at birth

Laughter was brought to tears
After jokes became hurtful

A connection as strong as concrete
Became quicksand

We stopped wanting

We stopped caring
About us


Hearts were broken
And we drifted apart
Finding ourselves
On course that was set to be a lifetime sentence
We refused to do together
While lost in the Bermuda triangle
Circling until we finally found a way out
Separately going in different directions
Out of survival

Before the words were spoken
Before the actions were made
Before the excuses were put into thought
The signs were there
That we just weren’t meant to be
