We Tried (A Poem)

We didn’t make it

It wasn’t because we didn’t love each other

nor was it because we didn’t try

We were on different paths

We forced those paths to meet

and it destroyed us

There was no talking,

only that thick silence as

you tried to reach me

and I,

I tried to reach you

But there was no compromise

We were both living separate lives,

instead of trying to figure out how to be one life


There was no relationship,

only anger and bitterness

that grew

and grew

In the end,

love wasn’t enough

Your kiss didn’t save me

My words couldn’t save you

You went one way and I,

I went another

Maybe one day our paths will cross again

But until then, at least we can say this:

We tried
