The thin ice where we danced together
had been weakening for a while.
I watched your smile and mine
slowly turn to frowns.
The cracks appeared swiftly
once they began to show.
We had shared the same dream, but
we were competing for the same ray of sun.
So the icy water gripped our bones
and together we drowned.
We pulled each other under
struggling for air in the deep water.
Nothing is ever solid as it seems
we murdered the dream that day.
