Why is it?

Why is it that every time I mend myself
You manage to chip a part of me away
Every time I see your eyes
I don’t see what you feel anymore
It’s like living in a faraway land
Where there is only an open space
No root, no life, no anchor
Nothing to pin us down anymore
And tell us we belong
I never thought we would be here
Two of us looking out
Me, yearning to touch you and tell you what I feel
And you, closed up like a shell
Afraid to let me in anymore
They say love breaks every shackle in the universe
Crosses all boundaries
Sets you free
Why is it then that I don’t breathe anymore?
Did your love kill the spirit of me?
