anti-hero

there must have been something
i could have done,
but i couldn’t compete
with the setting sun,
or the strength of love
when it catches a heart,
so i stood by and watched
and tried to look smart

sunset

i tried to seem clever,
i tried to pretend
that it’s all for the best
if you aren’t my friend,
and i blamed it on you,
but now i know,

that i

let our

friendship

go.
