Dedicated to all those ex-crushes that I've invited back into my life, on a crazy impulse. I know this poem sucks. I'm kind of rusty at this, so bear with me.
You weren't here when I needed you so,
You weren't around to wipe my tears.
And now you're back, why, I don't know,
Back in town, to bring back all my fears.
Your arms weren't around me, warm,
When I shivered with the gloomy cold.
You didn't protect me from the storm,
That raged wild, hurt me in ways untold.
You're there, smiling right down at me,
Like I'm a little kid, just sixteen, again.
I'm now a grown woman, can't you see?
Oh, the stupid insensitivity of stupid men!
Where were you when I was alone, then?
When I was sad, hurt and so, so lonely?
I just had to count, quick, from one to ten,
And you'd disappeared, you'd left me!
I try to forget, to wipe out those memories.
But here you are, a vision from the past.
You're back in town, to break me, piece by piece,
You're back in town, hopefully not to last!
