Killed their love

Infatuation stale in distant memory

Rubbing our noses in it

Two gifted minds

Putting each other down

To prove their worth

Molding the children

To save scraps of broken dreams

Boxing it in

Suffocated by empty ambition

Wrapped up in faded glory

Telling meaningless tales at the table

Competition killed their kindness

Leaving us in the shadows of fantasy

And falsehood

Bathing the babies in disappointment

And wet blankets

Raining down on the parade

forced among the path

Competition killed their shine

Two shells wandering aimless

Redirecting spotlight towards peanuts

And karaoke

Vicarious living

spread thin by moonlight

Killing their legacy

By competition
