Once One

We were once joined together
Forever I thought we would be one
Not two or three or four or five
Just one and to continue on,
And during that time we were happy
At least that is what I had thought
We smile and laughed, kissed and loved
Never did we argue or even fought,
You once said I was a great artist
In truth you said I was a great poet
You loved what my words did speak to you
And every word I wrote I had known it,
Then instead of two then there were three
The third I knew nothing about
To me it was an invisible number
A number which I could do without,
We were a one not any longer
You and I became the number two
Then I did my own subtraction
I lost one as you gained someone new.
