Incoherent Rôles

A flame did melt
No hearts to collide
Our eyes never met
Feelings aside

We sped down different directions
Kept our tongues to ourselves
Spent our days with contrasting intentions
Left all possibility on the shelf

Skin never conjoined
No bodies embraced
Sought out another path
Traveled opposite ways

Didn’t get what I want
Didn’t win what I’d seen
Played the wrong part
In this movie scene
