Tied in crucial categories
Expecting too much
Saw raw potential
Invested substantial efforts
Expecting the same
Sadly we fell short.
I thought we would shape ourselves in time of falling skies
One of us claims to be safe while the other dies
Pinky up, dressed up, arrived
One of us smiles then hides in different rooms to cry
Asking the other to show affection while holding hot knives
Maybe we both should clean our blackboards and retry this.
I’d like to retry this.
