ugly duck

She gets it all wrong

Maybe once or twice right

She butchers the song

That made them take flight


She loses the meaning

That kept things together

She trips on the feeling

That promised forever


She keeps on forgetting

When everything’s pain

She keeps on regretting

Though the grass is the same


Looking over her shoulder

Dancing out on the rim

She can’t stop the boulder

She pushed toward him


She’s klutzy as fuck

Rarely stopping the fall

Yet that still ugly duck

Tries again; gives it all
