You and me. It is not so complicated
And, It is not hard to see – Who of us
will express that our love is outdated.
If I say I no longer feel, I’m not elated
and, the journey without you is “Ace”
I know so, – you will laugh in my face.
I already know your smile. I read your
eyes and your smile is just a disguise.
– I wished everything that time tries.
I apologise, I tried to doubt the voice.
As it was tough to hide it between us;
I trusted life knowing everything dies.
Now, no more secrets fit, or adds to it
Besides what we’ve already agreed to
In the gap of promises we vowed true.
When / if I say I want to end it or digress
I phrase it in reverse. If I pretend I forget
Just remember – I didn’t forget anything
Because… the further I go, the closer I get
And losing sight of you is this won chase
And that’s why I had to cancel the future
And I make memories into my safe place.
Not that I want to relive any past’s strife
By upturning those turned over feelings.
But, every time I look for a way out, I end
up re-entering a past life. I comprehend.
Today, I look for excuses not to face you;
Not to say it again, the very same things
As always, “say just to say”, but never do.
I don’t care about the ceilings or its view.
The story of – the two of us – wills me to.
I can’t hide in lies. — You know my smile.
You read my eyes. You know my disguise.
