What Happened

Rating: 5.0
Every day we're beginning to struggle,
What happened to us playing in puddles,
Those late nights we used to cuddle,
Now all rests in a pile of rubble,

Never did I believe to see,
Our love and hope become misery,
The gates are open but where are we,
This is our chance to make our plea,

If we fade where is it we go,
Life is a cost and I am it's show,
In this game it's my heart and soul,
But my soul is crippling yet no one knows,

What can we do to ease this pain,
This spiritual suffering with no name,
I surrendered myself with one heart to gain,
Yet that heart burns with an impeccable flame,

We're falling apart and there is no stop,
What happened to us when we were at the top,
As days go by we continue to drop,
With velocity so high we could split a rock,

Not an original rock, but love,
The one that caused us to soar above,
Something so strong we were once proud of,
Now rests in temptations to say enough,

Our compatibility fell like the stars in the sky,
And I can only look to God to ask why,
He committed us something for us to try,
But like a rose in the winter we are beginning to die...
