The best we got

FROM THE COLLECTION: And we call that love?

You gave it all.

I gave it all.


You brought the ice cream,

I wanted coffee.


My gift is closeness,

You needed distance.


No flowers grow in your garden,

So I can’t make a pretty bouquet.


And no trees live on my shore,

So you can’t rest in the shade of a forest.


It took me some time to realize 

You can’t give what you don’t have.


Illusions fell pouring from the cloudy sky,

Announcing we won’t make it.


My heart broke yet again,

Realizing we both gave the best we got.


Yet the best wasn’t enough.

Not for you, and especially not for me.
