It Was Her All Over Again (Poem #137)

It’s like I was summoned

to pick up the pieces she left

and when my job is done

I’d leave you clean

and myself, a mess

It took years to realize

that despite all these girls that in your life passed

she was your first

and she’ll be your last

What a shame

to date a dozen girls

introduce them to the dusts of your soul

that always end up spelling her name

What a shame

to break hearts

just because you were badly scarred

What a shame

to have me on your list

of girls you kissed

and girls you dissed

I thought she could be replaced

what a shame of me to think

that with everything that I’ve done,

I still haven’t made any difference

All along I stood by you

but in your heart she stays

her memories not erased

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
