potential - poem in progress

I wrote this a while ago - after thinking about the lyrics to a tegan and sara song. the first version kind of just came to me organically (wow, that sounds so totally pretentious...what does that even mean?!) and then I thought it would be fun to flip it - hence the second version. it feels like a work in progress though; a poem that I could maybe workshop... if I knew how to do that. enjoy.

‘it isn’t you, it’s me’ – or  ‘it isn’t me, it’s you’’ series.

potential (I)

I could be
a really great
friend,
but something always
gets in the way.
I always
get in the way.


potential (II)

you could be
a really great
friend,
but something always
gets in the way.
you always
get in the way.
