She Stood Me Up One Too Many Times

…So I Wrote Her A Poem


Here I am again, laying mind swept

Just… thinking of you

Skulking through my mind’s crevasses

Any memory of you would do


Your smile… like a Caribbean summer

So warm and full of spice

Your voice piercing like a bullet

into my heart, how hard it tries


Tries to get away from the allure of your mystique

Tries to get away from your bittersweet beauty

Tries to find a way like it was hide and seek

But it remains laden, smitten by your mystery


Your eyes tell tales of a thousand fallen men

Your hips speak proverbs to the woe of the fallen

Your touch so tender, just your aura did woo men

You are clearly an astounding wo-man


Here I am again, laying mind swept

Just… thinking of you

Lost in a twisted fantasy

Trying to find you…
