Or Else…

I know what went wrong with us.
Now, I don’t know how to love you.
I don’t want to know you better in days to come.

It has been a long time,
but it seemed it was just the other day.

The hurt has gone from a mile to a thousand.

And look at what has been done to us.
The smiles have no more delight.
This feeling can’t be fine.

You become a stranger, the best friend in my past.
Can I be myself where you aren’t there?
Can I be the person who once loved you?
Can you set me free since I don’t love you anymore?

This wall is growing like a seed to a tree.
One brick to another, until it reaches the ceiling.
We’re the architects of a love story gone colorless.
You better unlock this cell, or else…
