I Wonder What Did Happen To Us - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

I wonder what happened to our relationship,
the friendship we once had;
the laughter on your mouth
and in your eyes are both gone.

You were so tender in gesture and speech
while I was your princess
and we talked about anything
while the nights were short
and in the smallest thing
we could find some kind of delight.

In passion hands sometimes did meet;
even over a cup of coffee sparks did fly
and I now see those hands
crossed over you chest.

All that is left of the love we did have
are tedious words, broken promises and lies.
What have happened to us?

All our words that we did have
now feel empty and vain,
although pardoning sometimes do cross my mind
mistakes are still made
while sharp words of disappear are in the air
as if dismay are in the emptiness of our lives.

We both do hand out pieces of glass
to cut up the place
that is even left for romance
and like bits of rolled up paper
we are tossing each other away

and although all of this keeps happening
I still do believe
that there is something left,
some love and lives to share;
while someday we will find a way
as hope still does prevail.
