When Max grew up, he found someone to hold:
he took a wife as many others do.
But over time, the love they felt grew cold,
and they did not know how to make it new.

And every time they argued or they fought,
their bond continued to erode and fray.
So they decided to untie their knot,
and when they sold their house, they moved away.

One day when Max was sitting in a park,
just watching couples walking hand-in-hand,
he thought about his ex till it was dark:
What happened to the life of bliss we planned?

Perhaps our love was only love in name.
It’s either real or just an ego game.
