This Is How It Always Is…

As each new day passes…
As I see people together…
The belief in me… the belief that love doesn’t stay…
That it’s just about the charm of something new coming your way…
And when that ‘new’ starts getting ‘old’…
U realize what u thought was such a warm feeling was frigid and cold…
U look into the person’s eyes
Who once promised to keep u happy always…
But now you’ll b questioning yourself if all that was said and felt.. actually stays..

I’ve seen people around me…
So happy and content…
With the beauty of first love….
Like lavender’s scent..
I felt so happy…
And felt this is it..
This is what we are made for…
And the rest is total shit…
But as the days pass…
Till I meet them again..
I realize that all that has disappeared…
Like a short winter rain…
I wonder what went wrong…
I wonder why aint it the same..
But my heart still hoped…
That this aint every1’s game..

But as the days pass….
My belief becoming stronger…
That this is how it is…
Makes me look for it no longer…
I never wanna be in love..
If this is what it is…
U feel you’ve got the world….
And feel total bliss..

Until one day….

When the same things u said…
That made the other person smile…
Turn into words… that make him rile..
He was someone… who loved every word u said…
But now doesn’t even care if there’s something bothering u in the head..
U believed him to be a person
Who’ll never let u cry…
But now you’ve cried so much because of him that your tears become dry…
I see people doing all that they can to make their mate happy…
I see them dancing and singing together…
As if u r some1 they can never hurt…
Then what happens to them….
Y do they become so rude and curt? ? ? ?
They don’t even hesitate..
Don’t even fret…
To break the ‘hard as stone’ promises that they once set…
Don’t they feel any guilt…
To break the trust that they built? ?
Is it so easy to lie?
As if it was a commodity u had been longing to buy?
And now that it’s yours…
And now that no1 else can take it..
U treat it as if….
It were better to just break it..

Iam a cynic now…
And I don’t believe in what people say and do…
There was a time…
When I used 2 see lovers…
And it looked like… does ne1 want more?
It’s nothing but happiness’ galore…

But now when I look at some1 similar..
I say.. honey wait for a while…
What u feel is love is nothing but guile…
The truth u will see…
What’s actually meant to be…
May God give u the strength…
When reality unfolds itself and the wraths vent…

Why… just why does this have to happen? ?
I scream… I cry… I wonder..
I feel all this is gonna tear my faith asunder…
But I don’t get an answer…
And as my fears seem to be turning into reality…
I keep falling deeper into this malady…

That the initial part of love is beautiful and rosy….
The blanket of love keeps u warm and cozy…
But as u tread forward…
And as the times pass…
The people change.. their emotions turn into glass…
What happens 2 them?
Don’t they like to be the same?
What changes them?
Do they only want to be associated with love’s name? ?
Why can’t they be like that forever? ?
If u can love some now…
Then y not forever…
If u cud damn the separation once..
Then y aren’t u happy when your finally together? ?

I am not happy concluding this…
May God restore my faith in this eternal bliss…
But what I can see around me….
Makes me feel mebbe this….
is how it always is…
this is how it always is…
