" I think the worst thing is when it's an
"almost" or a "could have been"
because you know there was something there, a kindling spark, but
fire didn't fully ignite and cast a flame big enough to take
hearts. So instead you're both left with singed corners of
and stitches down the middle keeping your frayed hearts intact
you were an almost, you were in love but no one wanted to admit
the spark went out and now you're left dull and dark left
somber in ashes
of how beautiful the flame could have grown to be. "
