He walked through the door,
My heart sank down to the floor
Years before, our bodies were as one
now his presence is just a reminder of what we have done…
to our lives, our hearts and egos as well
How did we manage to command our love to hell?
I question the validity of our connection that I believed so strong
and the softness of my heart that loved you for so long.
Maybe I didn’t know you at all?
Did I create you in my mind, exactly as I needed you to be?
Did you conform to my design until you decided to flee?
The questions linger,
the feelings remain,
My heart remains broken
and here you are once again.
Mirror, mirrror, I beg of you
Show me the girl that I once knew
The girl with the silky hair and porcelain skin
I’m so confused, where do I begin?
I knew she was here, not too long ago
Please mirror, mirror, I need to know
What happened to that young, beautiful girl that I once saw?
Her rosey cheeks,chiseled down to her jaw
Her eyes glistened like precious jewels
Please mirror mirror stop being so cruel
Show me that girl, and not the one that I see
I can’t understand how this could be me?
Days drag on
yet years fly by
Changes are gradual,
but in the blink of an eye,
we become unrecognizable
to the world, to ourselves
The plans we made,
into our minds we delve
Stepping off the original path
an unexpected life unfolds
The regrets we have,
Our broken heart holds
We dream through the day
and fret through the night
We wish to go back,
change what we can
We hope for more time,
To get back to our plan
We wither away in disbelief
no more plans, no more time,
…. just grief
