This week, I wrote about those little mistakes that make us human, and make us want to give up sometimes, but in the end keep us together…

Little Mistakes

This color starts to fade
But cannot be replaced
With another one
So I guess it will turn to gray
The big screen starts to play
The movie that we made
With each other once
But I guess it turns to gray
Arm in arm
Down the path we’ve chosen
Never doing harm
And we laugh like we’re frozen
The sky rains on us
And washes away our eyes
Because we couldn’t be crying
Things change on us
And watch us live our lives
But we still keep trying
We trade our smiles
Embarrassed by our little mistakes
These smells dissipate
But not before our fates
Become intertwined
So I guess it’s not too late
These tells give us away
But not before we escape
Find a place to hide
So I guess it’s not too late
Hand in hand
Down the road we’ve chosen
Never standing still
Hearts never quite broken
The sky rained on us
And washed away our eyes
So we wouldn’t start crying
Things changed on us
And watched us live our lives
So we’d still keep trying
We trade our smiles
Embarrassed by our little mistakes
We said our goodbyes
But it’s our goodbyes that got up
And walked away

      But it is! I changed it from ‘platonic’ in part because of what you wrote.

    Hook me up, Mr. Ed… sorry it is so late. Busy day. Love the poem. Moving but not too mushy. Sweet but not in a cloying way. Like a fine wine.

    I am not even listed. That is the most unromantical thing ever… sob…

    You know, I don’t think you’ve ever written a poem that I didn’t love! Gawd.

    Perhaps next week I will join in!

    Love that last line. I’m lame and didn’t make my Romantic Monday post but for the record it was because I was spending time with my best platonic pal!

      I figured you would just rerun that video you made with her. The one where you say my name!!!!!!!!!

        You’d like that, wouldn’t you! Just watch it on repeat!😉

          You said his name? On the video? He is going to be INSUFFERABLE soon. Gawd.

            She did that like 2 months ago, and I’ve barely mentioned it. Gawd.

              Your abundant use the the exclamation points made me think (which I rarely do) you were a wee bit excited about it, that’s all.
