    If we were in a book,
    We would be that forbidden love story
    Dreaded and cursed
    Amidst a dark raging war
    Between majestic cities and states
    Mine and yours.

    If we were in a book,
    You would be the sweetheart
    Whose mere mention
    makes the reader smile coyly,
    Whose words would mesmerize
    even your despised nemesis.

    If we were in a book,
    I would be the gray to your blue
    The rain to your sunny day
    The goth to your Rome
    The scary misfortune.

    If we were in a book,
    We would assure the reader
    a happily ever after,
    And just like all the promises
    ever made, we would break it
    into a million little pieces.

    We would still say
    a sorrowful goodbye.
    We would still smile
    at each other in the epilogue
    Just the way we did on the cover.

    If we were in a book,
    We would still fall in love.

    - Rasvi Maligi.
