Names

I've thought of many names
ones that I think
are better than the one
your parents gave you
the day you were born.

Crush.
Best friend.
Shallow.

Things were different once.
A different time,
a different place,
and a very different me.

Things are different again.

You call me nostalgic
and tell me I'm living in the past.
I call you a coward
for refusing to face me.

Back and forth we go:

Tease.
Flirt.
"Friend".
Enemy.
Dreamer.
Heartbreaker.

And once upon a time,
we were all these things
(and so much more
to each other)
and perhaps we always will be.

Reviews are loved, the people who write them even more so.

SNO.
