You and I

You and I,
We were extraordinary --
We were unstoppable;
But we left our doors ajar
And the world barged in.

We carried on   
Treading on a tightrope 
A disillusioned life --
One that was not to be or
Perhaps, it needed not to be. 

We were bystanders  
as despite and devotion 
Coexisted as one --
Perplexed by one another,
Yet insisting on one another.

Perception and reality
Converged and diverged
With each action and reaction,
Stretching the bounds 
Of our fidelity
Until it was no more.

I welcome constructive critisism; I am not fragile so go for it -- tell me what you really think!
