We
had it all
and then We
lost it all
and now We’re
barely hanging on
to whatever We
can grab.
do you remember
when it was going
so well and We
thought that We
were on top of the
world?
do you remember
how it felt like
when everything started
to fall together
like puzzle pieces
that We
hadn’t noticed
were there all along?
and do you remember
the way it
felt like when We
thought that nothing
could stop Us
from doing whatever We
wanted?
do you remember
how We
kind of
saw it coming
but thought that We
were strong enough
to last the tidal wave?
do you remember
all the dreams We
had and all the things We
were going to do?
do you remember
how We
were going to change
the world?
and do you remember
the way the wave went
crashing down on Us
and what should have
been a spray
turned into a tsunami?
do you remember
how We
tried to hold hands
before it came
but I
looked the other way
and thought I
was strong
enough
thought I
was good
enough
without You?
do you remember
when You
were trying to throw
a lifejacket at Me
but I
was going to swim
away
because I
just knew I
was better than You?
do you remember
the things We
promised with Our
eyes but poisoned with Our
hearts?
and do you remember
and do you remember
and do you remember
anything?
because I
do.
