I Don't Know Why

Postby cosivantutte » Thu May 08, 2014 8:54 pm

I was reading an article and I ran across this line - "why they broke up, or why they were together to begin with". It inspired me to write this:

I Don't Know Why

I don't know why we were together.
Were we only acquaintances?
Were we friends?
Or were we longing for always something out of reach?
We touched.
We were one.

You said we were meant to be.
We were perfect.
You said we were destined.
We were right and right.

I don't know why we broke up.
Was it sorrow?
Was it joy?
Or was it a longing we couldn't reach?
We couldn't touch.
We are two.

I miss you.
I want you.
Right and right.

I don't know why we stay apart.
Is it habit?
Is it fear?
Or are we a longing forever out of reach?
We never touch.
We remain two.
