People are stories. With tales of highs and lows weaved intricately, into paragraphs adorned with hopeful commas and mournful full stops. And sometimes, they're stories with little poetry inserted in between. People are fascinating stories and beautiful poetry. But you and I, we're a fable, maybe. Too magical to exist and too raw to be rhymed. You and I, we are no poetry.
We're perhaps, a set of scrambled phrases that sometimes make a certain stanza in each other's poetry, less monotonous. We're a little bit of you. A tiny bit of me. But not enough of us. We're the verses that don't fit anywhere, yet, never stop searching for a home. We're the forgotten syllables that are recalled once in a blue moon, only to satisfy an old rhyme scheme.
We are everything that makes up a poetry. But no. You and I, we are no poetry.
