I try not to look away; I give out no sign
That the love which held us together for years
Has suddenly disappeared like the mist clears.
I never realised, am sure nor did you,
That like ancient ink, love could fade too.
When we sang those songs of togetherness, long ago,
I never thought we could be separate so.
Mind you, it is no fault of you or me,
It is just a matter of destiny.
We over-worked our charms, you see,
We forgot to water the plant regularly.
And as we slide out of our slimy web,
We do not even match our step,
So I move fast, you move faster,
And our love goes frigid, like some plaster.
Love, old love, apologies.
We can no longer sing the same melodies.
Let us move away, in peace and calm,
Knowing we can no longer be in the same swarm.

Turn, turn and turn.
Perfectionism doesn't stand.
It just happened, don't worry.
A little cheating is ok.
We are not doing anything wrong.
We are not in love;
but feelings are sometimes overpowering.
You eat, I eat.
The keys of the same bunch rattle together.
Strings draw the kites up into the sky.
We like each other, let's not deceive our hearts.
Blood's always red, thicker than water.
Nerves connect, dissect. Reflex action.
Hearts are pure, everything can be forgiven.
There's nothing to forgive, actually.
Life goes on.
One small memory, sweet and sharp.
You lived, I lived.
