What happened to us?

Rusted door and dusty shelves,

bushes and weeds in our beloved garden,

life was a rush and we forgot how to love.

Money , bills and a life boring and still ,

daily humdrums rusted our shiny life ,

and we stopped looking eye to eye.

Photographs engulfed by the spider web ,

our memories together just a speck of dust.

I wonder what happened to us.

Why did we lost each other in this show and light ?

when all we needed was each other by our side.

We had to hang a smile and pretend everything was fine.

Cloaked in those dark nights we stared at the ceiling,

sleep was a distant dream inside we still cared ,

but we locked the door and let it rust and sob.

Maybe we are like the rails which flows together,

but meets nowhere.

Still , I wonder what happened to us.
