Strangers in the room

Do we know each other at all ?

I’m starting to doubt it now

‘Cause I am the one taking the fall,

When in reality we both took the vow.

I look towards you in earnest hope

Trying to catch your gaze,

But my mind screams of no scope

No way to get out of this maze.

You dont connect to mind heart anymore

I dont see your emotion towards me

I want to walk out of the damn door

I don’t know why I’m tied down to thee.

We dont speak at all these days

Not even feel the presence there

My eyes wonder but tongue fails to praise

The unending sorrow that dwells everywhere.

I have a responsibility to our daughter

I cannot allow myself to let her down

But is fair to swim in drowning water

And make her wear my shallow crown?

Unhappy is the milestone we have reached

And this goal was never listed in our vows

This distance now cannot be breached

We’re strangers in the same room as love allows.
