It was madness. The push and pull.
Lies creeping with deceit- carefully tip toeing.
Maybe never saying the words,
But never clarifying questions asked or assumptions made.
Never caring. Half mindedly present with a plan-
Though undefined. Rather a map with roads all leading down different paths.
Red flags and making excuses for the joy; the chaos-
Happy times shared revealing meaningless dust.
The moments of togetherness and trying to grow something,
build something new; adventures that would lead to something of glory.
The shiny yellow-brick road and all of its temptations.
