The Beginning And The End

In the beginning, all we felt was love,
   Forgiveness, joy, contentment, ecstasy;
And in the end, we were the victims of
   Neediness, hate, resentment, jealousy.
While other hearts walked cautiously, ours dared;
   When every daring heart fell, we ascended.
We made a heaven out of all we shared
   And we were damned to hell the day it ended.
We swore that we would always be together;
   You cursed, I acted like a maniac.
We said: “There is no storm we cannot weather;”
   We said the kind of things you can’t take back.
      And though our future’s Never now, not When—
      Because it’s you, I’d do it all again.
