I looked at the nightly skies and marvelled at the sight.
For what I saw before me,was the sky kissing the stars.
And oh,how the stars dazzled ever brightly
When they met the loving embrace of sweet darkness.
And all I could think of was-it should've been us.

Me and you,against the world like a pair of villians.
Laughing madly at the chaos and destruction,that our love has left in its path.
But no,the world crushed our dreams,like the weight of gravity which keeps us grounded-
unable to reach the dreams that we had drawn in the sky,with the phantom brushes of our imagination.

How cruel the world is...
Cause we thought that we had a fairytale,but the world drenched our dreams like a bucket of water,
As if to wake up someone unconscious.
And awaken us,it did-cos we were forced to face reality.
Unable to hide the curtain of fantasy,provided by our lofty dreams.

And as we fell deeper into the pits of darkness,
We saw no light at the end of the tunnel.And thus we knew,that the end was near.
Because darkness,is the absence of hope.
And as I saw the light in your eyes die,
I knew that you had given-given up on us.

And even though we had not said "till death do us apart" -this was written in the stars.
Cause what we had,was enough to swallow up seas like unquenchable beast.
What we had was bigger than marriage vows,
Bigger than anything words could ever hope to express.

But the world was against us.
We were like David fighting Goliath,without God on our side.So we had no Higher Power,
Which could help us defeat the giants that we had to overcome.
Because jealousy,insecurities and doubts,were demons that we had to face on our own.

We were supposed to be Romeo and Juliet that would make it.
The ones that would pierce the cloud of tragic love,like the sun during a cloudy day.Thus,transforming it into a fairytale type of love.

And so,as I look at this clear night sky,filled with the smiling auras of the stars.I can't help but think that- it should've been us...
