She jumped from one happiness to the next.
(Youâ€™re the only one.)
They made her smile (Youâ€™re beautiful)
until they made her cry.
(But Iâ€™m not looking to settle down.)
They broke her heart (This isnâ€™t working anymore,) and her spirit (But letâ€™s still be friends.)
Over and over again,
she trusted the fragments of her soul with others
(Iâ€™d never hurt you like he did.)
she thought they could fix her.
Once they inevitably abandoned her
(Itâ€™s not you, itâ€™s me) she would end up
leaving with more of them than of herself.
And this is how a personâ€™s own reflection
Can become unrecognizable.
Currently Listening To:
- Alicia Cook – “Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately”
The poetry thing is getting me through again, though as of late it’s rarely my own. The conversations we could have from this collection. Fuck. I miss you like mad.
