You and me
We should be poetry
We should be prose
The way our breathing slows
And our hearts beat
Like wings on Bourbon Street.

You and I
We should be together
Birds of a feather
Flying on wings of time.

We always had rhythm, you know
We just never had rhyme.
We committed a crime together
We should've served time
Or been brought to justice…
But it was just us
Perfect in our alibi.

We may not've had rhyme
But at least we had reason
We committed treason together
And should've been tried
We should've been been true
Me and you
On the corner of Bourbon Street
And Fifth Avenue.

Great poetry, a good friend of mine told me what happened! Sorry for your pain, just remember that time will heal, but won’t make you forget!
