. Because Now There Is No 'Us' - Poem by Kay Barcelon

Why do we hurt each other
Is it love or is it hate
Is it because we are far away
Or is it because we know
There is no tomorrow

Did we forget once we have loved
Did we lost the feeling of passion
Have we replaced it with sorrows
Why the insensible struggling
Are we mourning for the lost love

Why are we fighting
Why are we hurting
Why are we in agony
Why do we even talk
Why can’t we go back

Remember the days
We laughed and we danced
Remember the feeling
There was no one else but us
Or is it the memory that hurts

    Lovely, with just enough sadness to make me cry. Its seems dry though; i was also confused by the lack of puncuation. (Report)Reply
