A Personal Affair

estranged couple


Yes, I kept a secret
And yes I lied
But I wanted to be honest
I swear I tried.
You see, it’s not easy
To juggle all these roles.

I have been trying hard
To cover all these holes.
I have been trying to talk
But you don’t seem to listen
And slowly, very slowly
There has come a wide division.

You may want to work on it
And you may want to talk
But you have already lost
The key to my heart’s lock.
See, I never needed flowers
And I never asked for pearls
And neither your little parties
And nor your palace walls.

All I wanted was a patient listener
And a companion to walk with
An evening stroll by the river
And a kindred spirit to talk with.
It’s all over now
My dreams and your desire
Let’s just accept it
Relationships do expire.
