She was,
Unpredictable to be sure.

She was someone who could have been beautiful if she tried,
But she did not.
She could have been erotic if she tried.
But she did not.

Could have been passionate if she tried,
Thoughtful if she tried,
Wise if she tried,
But she did not.

She could have been sweet if she tried,
Patient if she tried,
Truthful if she tried,
But she did not.

She did not.
She did not.
She did not.

She could not,
Because I would not.
