Right from the start,
They both knew what they had was toxic.
Yet the unforgettable moments they had...
Into thinking that every day will always be a fairytale
They used to make promises to one another.
He would always say "Forever and always, you and me."
And she would smile, as she says back "Forever and always, with you and only you."
... But did they also mean it was forever and always of nights filled with breaking down and finding ways to hurt the other?
Never-ending fights and yelling at each other until their voices pierced through the atmosphere.
Reminding one another of their flaws and imperfections...
That they used to promise they would also love about each other.
But suddenly being shouted at right in front of their faces?
Back then, it used to be "I love you,"
But now they refuse to even mutter a single word to one another...
Every night, as each fight ends.
All screams and slamming of doors have finally stopped.
And one of them just cries themselves to sleep.
While the other refuses to break down, even though he wants to.
Yet they keep holding on
Keep coming back for each pain to bask on.
And as each tear is shed.
And they're finally contented of finally breaking each other's hearts...
... What couldn't they just leave?
What were they so afraid of?
Heartbreak that you couldn't be able to come back to and fix?
Trail of memories following them around?
Was it just for lust?
Was it for the love they both promised...
To forever cherish?
They were both strong enough to let go.
Yet they never did.
Back then it used to be...
"I will never let go."
"I want to let go... but I just can't,"
.... Why is that?
