We used to be that perfect couple.
We would make promises as though
We were already married,
That through heaven and hell
We will always prevail.

We would share dreams and play make-believe,
We would cuddle and tickle and be children again.
We would act like we're on top of the world
And that nothing could bring us down.

And nothing did, all their efforts in vain.
The reason we fell is because
We were pulling on each other,
Holding hands, leaning back, face to face,
Using the others weight to keep ourselves
From falling backwards,
And the moment one let go, the other gave up.
