Belonged   (epic)

The stars slowly come out

Can’t help but notice-

I swear my soul is badly torn

It’s not supposed to be like this- at all

And yet this is what reality does

Life kept changing our promising plans

And no matter what we did

There was always something else

As if some unseen force to hampered them

World wind romances take a chance

Until they foolishly burn themselves out

But we never entertained any doubt

Once we found- each other’s heart   

Now come these queer times

If only I could’ve stalled time

If only I could’ve stalled time

If only- I could’ve when you were here

Sitting along beside who I am

My overwrought heart bleeds in tears

And then I just don’t feel like

I fit right inside my own skin

Painful thoughts lost in you

Return like some dark vengeance

Emotion’s rush all throughout me

With nowhere else to flow

Reminding me- I’m here now- alone

Maybe love itself let us both down?

I’m terrified to avoid my feelings

Afraid I’ll lose our best connections

We never feared growing old together

We were astutely for sure

We were loves perfection in motion  

Now only one of us- sits here

Can’t understand what went awry

So, I close my eyes trying to hide

Inside memories I’m envisioning

All the love we created back then

Slow burning the moments together

Always seen living love, holding hands

When the two of us were all, we needed  

It started with laughter of your smiles

I swear they always changed my world

Floating high within a drifting zephyr

That always set my heart on fire  

Within unforgettable scent of your skin

Caressing mine like they were silly kisses

Now, I hear your lost whispers returning

My tears…wish I could feel them in my ears
