Oh Twenty, Twenty

Life can become unpredictable. And everything can change in one second, if not in a split second.

You began with so much hope
Everyone bought you
Like a bargain

Suddenly, happiness and anxiety walks together
Suddenly you introduce us to darkness
Darkness that turned into heavy mist
Mist that makes everything rusty

Mist that destroys
Mist that leaves everything to wilt
That makes you bid farewell, and breaks you
"What more?" was not enough

Oh mist! Suddenly there was hope
Suddenly you introduced me to hope
Suddenly you took it away, again
Suddenly you became destructive

Oh destructive twenty
Worthless, crushing twenty
Hope is there still, but anxiety is dominating
Oh twenty, twenty I leave you in long awaited peace.

That's a hard one to handle.

The constant up & down of a relationship...when you want it to work.

Good write
