a euphemism for regrets.
they asked us if we were in love
and we said we were non-believers,
we said we were swimming in waters,
never crossing lines
never touching shore,
drifting like messages in bottles.
we said we once danced on clouds
but we never fell together,
only created melodies
that coexisted blissfully.
we said we were delicate candlelights,
timid flames that fluttered
in the passing breeze,
separated by infinite molecules
they asked if we were in love,
and we shyed away,
said love didn't exist.
we fell into a perpetual belief,
easing away from bittersweet
we went our separate ways,
walked the boardwalks of life,
and fell into our own hallows
beneath the blue waters.
and we drowned in fantasies one day.
