She never said I could reach the moon.
She never said I could see the stars at night.
She never said you and I would be good together.
So many things that were never said.
But maybe, baby.
They should have been.
Cause she never said we couldn’t, we wouldn’t, we shouldn’t.
But then again, she never said we could, we would, or we should.
But deep, down, inside.
I know we’re meant to be.
Please believe.


She never said I could dream with my eyes open.
But I’m always dreaming about you.
She never said I could be broken.
But nothing’s hurt this much before.
She never said I could remember anything.
But I’ll never forget your face.
All things that could have, would have, and should have been said.

She never said I couldn’t amount to anything.
But I’ve never fallen this hard before.
She never said I couldn’t be anything I wanted.
But I’ve never been this lost before.
She never said I couldn’t believe in myself.
But I’ve never had any confidence.
All things that could have, would have, and should have been said.

I think you used a good amount of repetition and you used it right. It gave the poem emotion and showed some of the helplessness felt, in a better way.
