The Story of Us

By Dru Macasieb

Once upon a time,
In a land torn apart,
Came a beauty so divine.
Who stole my lonely heart…

Little did I know,
Another saw her shine,
And opened up his heart…

Little did I show,
The love inside mine,
Which wasn’t very smart…

So now I’m slowly dying,
While thinking of how to live,
My heart’s tired of crying,
What can I give?

I would see her with him,
Every single day,
Stabbing my heart,
Melting away…

I finally found the courage,
To show the love I kept,
She healed all the pain,
And fixed what was left…

I felt true pleasure,
The other guy felt massive pain,
How can she be a treasure,
When one goes insane?

He became my foe,
She became my life,
I became entangled,
Between wrong and right…

My friends became strangers,
And I stood alone,
Dying in darkness,
Searching for a home…

I knew me and her,
Can never ever be,
Because I know,
It will hurt him,
And truly hurt me…

So a year has passed,
A time for anew.
But this love has lasted,
It has lived it through…

I found a new friend,
Who was my bitter foe.
Planted seeds of friendship,
Waiting for it to grow…

Then she came back,
With attractiveness in the air,
I still have funny feelings,
Knowing she’s there.

I know my friend feels it too,
The love she gives away,
He tries to hide the clues,
That his love had stayed…

We all became friends,
But one thing I know,
If she chose one of us,
Our friendships would go…

Relate this to you,
If you must,
This is the story,
The story of us.
