You And I

You and I were never friends
We just shared the same friends
But we weren’t the same
In fact, we were complete opposites
And we offended each other to the core
You would say ignorant and offensive things
Regurgitations from your mother
I would say enlightened things that threatened your whole world view
I left
Knowing that it was better to let our whole network of friendships go up in flames
Than to constantly get burned by a cinder
