It was harsh for me to see them breaking down,
He wanted to pretend he was happy,
And she appeared to be smiling too.
I was stuck in the middle of this pretense,
Not knowing what to do?
She wanted me to talk to him,
Telling him that she wasn’t suitable for him;
He wanted me to distract him,
As hearing about her,
Pricked him to the core.
Their love had blossomed right in front of me,
It was a bitter blow to me,
Watching them drifting apart;
I watched upon helpless,
As my words were deemed useless and couldn’t play their part.
As I heard her voice over the call,
Her voice wavering at every word,
Trying to hold the emotions in.
He wanted to free her off the shackles,
Thinking she wanted this all along.
The promises of eternal love,
On the path shaping into matrimony,
Got lost somewhere as the journey came to a grievous ending.
She wanted to apologize,
But kept hunting for the words to do so,
He wanted to make amends
But he was tired of trying every time.
Each waited for the other to regret
And the feelings came to a distressing end.
I looked upon feeling powerless,
A mere spectator as two lovers were wrenched apart,
I saw them fading away;
As Ego became the Ditch again,
The Distance had played the Devil yet again.
