maybe

maybe we weren’t meant to be.

and when the clock strikes twelve on a rainy afternoon

maybe i wouldn’t be

strong and steadfast

holding on tight

to you

and all your little idiosyncrasies

 

maybe the time we spent

was better off

together but apart

lips interlocked, hearts not

even as our lungs cry out

for the same air

maybe from the start

you and i

were never meant to be
