Misplaced

You promised forever

But I see the distance

In your eyes

Where did we go wrong

How did we end up here

I had a dream

A perfect little fantasy

You and me

A beautiful house

A family

Somewhere down the line

We got lost

I reach out

Try to grab your hand

All that is left

Emptiness

You promised forever

But I see the distance

Coming closer

How did we end up

So far gone

It was supposed to last

Love can conquer anything

But somewhere down the line

We got lost

Great poem, sad but something many couples can relate to. Good work.
