Enough

You and I –

We were never the stuff

Of gallant ballads

Of sweet fairytales

Of another’s lyrics.

You and I –

We were never the stuff

Of fantasy

Of ecstasy

Of lunacy.

You and I –

We never made for stories

Of mad desire

Of the heart’s allure

Of tales stellar.

Not enough photographs

Not enough video snaps

Not enough artsy scribbles

To make for a pretty picture;

Not enough montages

Not enough brush strokes

Not enough bokehs

Floating idly in the background;

Not enough of fairy lights

Not enough of stardust

Not enough of angels

Singing into the nights.

You and I –

We never could be

The stuff of poetry

Or whimsical daydreams.

But what we could be

Is real,

And that’s good enough

For me.
