You once lived in splashing colors
Rainbows, magic and light.
With your illuminated skies of dancing ferries
With your countless conquests on raging seas
We were allies in mischief,
Sole controller of our happiness.
Once, you would forget your playstation
To lie by my side on the grass
And enjoy a movie, a movie of the true stars.
Once we were happy.
And once all that it constituted was love
Once I would remind you of this, and
We would talk about it.
But I can’t now.
Once you would listen
But now I fear your response.
We are struggling, confused
Trying to find this road that we once strode.
I now feel threatened by your silly jabs
When once I would laugh.
We now argue and fight
Cutting each other down, cutting each other off
Once, this was play.
And now we reside in this darkness,
Somber like a funeral.
Once, this was life
