Daily Prompts

(Mis)matching Hypothesis



We were as unlike as

Two peas in two pods-

If I was a sweater

You were a different weather;

If you were the peanut,

I was the allergy.

Sometimes our silences hung

Between us like a shower curtain.

I often wonder who was on the side

That got wet.

But still we stuck

Like gummy bears

That are spit on the ceiling-

By bored children.

Maybe you and I bit off

More than we could chew.

Eventually we fell down-

Dysmorphic and discoloured.

We picked ourselves up quickly

You ran one way, and I-

The other.

That we could never be

Something, let alone anything:

Now became clear

Beyond a doubt.
