I was in the home stretch Of the worst heart break 5k I’ve faced since last May Was tired of putting bandaids Over scars from old stitches Left by a few witches That flew away as fast as they came I don’t know what possessed me To speak first Maybe it was a side effect From all of Cupid’s grazed arrows Flying freely like sparrows Only to miss their mark Leaving me with a thirst To conquer love once and for all In short You congest my brain The way a rainbow stalls a dreary day And resurrected the good parts of me I sent to an early grave A beacon on a stormy night The sigh of relief when you get a question right You make me feel like a kid On Christmas morning That just received Everything they were hoping I’d gladly go through **** again If it meant in the end I get to hold your hand.
You’ve been gone Longer than you stayed The ticking of a clock Echoing the sound Of my heart break Said you’d never leave You were gone the next day Told me I made you happy But something made you run away An unsolved mystery You’ll take to your unmarked grave.
You left I settled for A one night stand To inject novacaine Into my broken heart Instead I was sedated Against my will While the parts of me You loved Were taken advantage of And while she slept The only thought Running through My drunken head Was that You were only A block away And I wished You could feel My pain Like a beckoning call To be my saving grace Before I became something I now hate.
She robbed me of the good, and left me to sort out the bad.
A cheesy pickup line Grand parade of flattery You’re first in line Cute Funny Surprise, I’m here I can’t stay long
How many kisses? I lost count
Sweets You’re too good for me I’m glad you’re in my life You make me happy I’m not seeing anyone else It’s not possible for me to stop liking you I’m just really busy*
All of the things you said and did Run around my head Like a haunted carousel I’m reluctant to ride again. I mute my heartbreak by reminiscing In betweens of our beginning and end.
Then I think
You couldn’t remember the color of my eyes, Even if you were staring right at them. I remember every smile you cracked, And the way your half ***** body danced. Saving a list of your favorite things, Should I ever forget.
(I never did.)
My thief in broad daylight, How I adored your lies. Your someone new Was the reason you stopped making time, And I wasn’t worth a poem Or an apology, Much less a goodbye.
