Our fingertips brushed only for a moment,
Too little, too late,
The void between us gaped open,
I never thought it'd be like this, not ever,
But it seems like the world wanted to wait.
No longer close, just far,
Independence demands separation,
Friends yearn for companionship,
And we severed the bond right at the hip.
At the cost of our close connection,
It left a door in my heart ajar,
I die gradually every day,
Knowing what we possessed was worth lifetimes,
One mind, one soul, two bodies, halves of one another,
Personalities split down the center, a sister to your brother,
A spark, so small, with melodies of chimes,
Diminishing into silence, taking hearts away.
Lives overwhelmed and communication ceased,
Hearts longing found others, a different perfect match,
In understanding death, you understand life,
Knowing that it's necessary to fend off strife,
We intertwined with others, desiring to attach,
Found our one and only, and all other things decreased.
