She entered in at my lowest point
Amid her struggles, hinging on joint
A bond was built with braided strand
But the illusion of strength is sometimes sand.
Ever-present, when her love needed care
Aspirations of Norway, dreams of somewhere
Soulmate connection with fabricated rules
Ever-changing enigma, a contest of fools.
I returned to reality after a long, cold winter
To find him in frame, a shadowy figure
Someone she felt and touched all the same
Her new adventure, her alternate game.
Brakes locked up to drift right around
Skid marks on pavement, emotions on ground
Change of plans, reversal of pace
This sad soul neglected, fresh tears cover face.
Oblivious inquiry to my state of affairs
To my broken heart and my soul in despair
Off to the side, on my hands and knees
Out of her focus, unable to be.
