Neck And Neck

Tied in crucial categories

Expecting too much

Disappointing others.

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.
