PINCH

you see

It was the best we could offer

to be our better version

but it was not enough

It was small to you

not as per your standards

and to little to me to match the energy

was there any other option

none

so it was each to their own ways

to be at terms with it

that every beginning has an end

and people have to forge an individual path

that leads them to where peace is

so we parted ways

from lovers to no definition

of if whether friends or just strangers
