Because I never liked flowers
Pearls never made me giddy
Because fireworks I saw everyday
And today wasn’t what you wanted it to be
The sandwich was sandy
And my blue skirt, too frilly.
We didn’t gaze at the stars,
Because of the stupid smoke of their stupid cigars…
I felt no sparks and saw no lights
Because you’re you, and I’m me
And nothing is the way it’s meant to be.
