when I first saw you
it wasn’t a pretty day.
it wasn’t even a good day.
there weren’t sparks or eye contact.
I just saw you and that
was about it.

when you first saw me
it wasn’t a cloudy day.
it wasn’t even a bad day.
there weren’t doubts or misunderstandings.
you just saw me and that
was about it.

the way we saw each other then
set the tone to what we were and
what we became.
there was nothing in our favor,
no magic spell, no gentle push of fate,
just reality checks.
but yet we are here.
we are here.
