Tilted

If I were so small

 would you have still seen me passing in the hall

  was I so special for your head to turn that moment

   If it hadn't...maybe we both didn't have to go through that torment

    If I were too tall

     would you still have kissed my lips

      the reach would probably make you fall

       but we both fell through, skin carving on the slit

        see

         now

           my vision has wilted

           and

            the

             love

              I felt for you

               has

                been

                 so

                   tilted.
