you and i

If I were more pretty

or you were more inclined,

we’d pack up all the things we love

and leave the rest behind.

But I am not that pretty

and you are so unkind.

We’ll leave it all where it lies

and pretend that we don’t mind.

If you weren’t a traitor

or I not so easily broken,

we could at least be friends once more

forgetting hurtful words were spoken.

But you could not be loyal

and I can not be strong,

and so we’ll go out separate ways

as though we’d planned it all along.
