You & i by Sydnee Williams

You were expecting simplicity
You received convolution.

You wanted love
You were given headaches.

You anticipated growth
You got feet in the mud.

You longed for sympathy
You caught a cold shoulder.

You were You,
I was for me.
That’s all it ever was.


i never cared about my feelings
i cared about my preservation
i thought they were one in the same.

i could have been better
i could have been a different person for You.

i was a puddle, walk around or get wet.
i was everything that could go wrong on your worst day.
i was work on a Monday.
i was destruction under construction
But you loved it.

Either way it was always you as you
And whatever you got when you bargained for me.
