It started with us holding a glance,
A subtle coy smile followed by chance,
We swirled about in each other's general direction,
To bump into each other for an orchestrated connection.
It started with us holding hands,
Hoping infinity will be where our love lands,
We intertwined for the first time as the waiting felt too long,
Apocalypse hit, as our lips crushed over our favourite song.
It started with the sombre blue valentine,
With an odd pairing of our cherished pizza and wine,
We were in the dreadfully sappy honeymoon phase,
Sometimes it felt unreal, like a wakeful daze.
It started with those pensive sighs,
Those lows followed our passionate highs,
We bickered and shouted over dirty denim,
We never listened, just heard the other spew venom.
It started with a deceitful sinking feeling,
As if we stood over a collapsing ceiling,
We let the unsaid feed our private resentments for too long,
I'm here under my blanky, crying to our favourite song.
