How does happiness turn into loneliness?
The beautiful glow of her smile is lost,
bound in steel wire and tortured in the
same cold darkness that now hides her heart.
How does passion become apathy?
Once a kiss that stole from the lungs
and left the lips wet and wanting more;
now a kiss from a mouth dry and lips chapped,
breathing toxin - a kiss of death.
How does commitment fall silent?
The foundation always holds strong
through the trials of weather and time,
but housing fear and pain has
collapsed the walls that surrounded us.
