You were expecting simplicity
You received convolution.
You wanted love
You were given headaches.
You anticipated growth
You got feet in the mud.
You longed for sympathy
You caught a cold shoulder.
You were You,
I was for me.
That’s all it ever was.
i never cared about my feelings
i cared about my preservation
i thought they were one in the same.
i could have been better
i could have been a different person for You.
i was a puddle, walk around or get wet.
i was everything that could go wrong on your worst day.
i was work on a Monday.
i was destruction under construction
But you loved it.
Either way it was always you as you
And whatever you got when you bargained for me.
