looking back

don’t you see
it wasn’t me
i wasn’t you
it wasn’t true

we lived together
through foul weather
the waves were lapping
and we were napping

it wasn’t much
there was no touch
a lost endeavour
shared together

the years passed slowly
you called me holy
it didn’t matter
our lives were shattered

there is no ending
just false beginnings
the road less travelled
is to be marvelled
