A Hopeless Romantic Amongst a Hookup Culture
A comprehensive list on why boys like me:
1: my body
2: I give good head
3: see above reasons

I just want to break something the way you broke me.
- shattered and alone

Places you said youíd take me:
The Rose Garden
Your Home Town
Places you took me:
A Dark Place
A Low Point
Places you left me:

When we kissed,
You knew itíd be for the last time.
When we kissed,
I was just happy to see you again.

When the leaves fell,
We did too.
When it got cold,
Our love did too.

Our love is:
The changing of seasons
Dancing in candlelight
Letters in the mail
Ethnic food in bed
Paragraphs of text

He touches you like you have lifeís answers tattooed on your skin in Braille.
He kisses you like the last supply of oxygen lives in your lungs.

My worth is skin deep.
You only love what you can see.
So I put on a bikini,
Because when I do, I know youíll tell me that you ďmiss me.Ē
My value is in diet pills,
And drunk sex,
And vodka spills on my tied up tee shirt.
Letting you use me even though I know Iím the one who will get hurt.
I am more than a body,
But thatís not why you like me.
Close my mouth and spread my legs,
Just for you to leave me on read.

Depression froze into the cracks of my foundation and expanded,
But unlike road construction,
No one was there to patch me up in the spring.

Gone too Soon
It all started in summer.
I beheld you, so pure, so full of life and color.
We skipped to recess hand in hand.
Jumped off swings.
Climbed up trees,
And built castles in the sand.
You told me you felt fall coming.
Not seeing the wear on your sneakers,
Or what you were outrunning,
I told you I was excited for the changing of leaves.
I wish I could tell you how pretty the snow was in winter,
Or how my world went cold without you.
All I have left of you is the knowledge of what I should do with another birthday...

They say that trust is a two way street,
That conjoining road is a place I yearn meet.
But you don't trust me and I donít trust you,
So, meeting on that street would be a hard thing to do.

Losing you is slipping into an old sweater.
But itís not quite enough to weather the icy grip that comes with it.
Because, you see, loneliness has been my oldest friend.
And no matter how many times I ignore her messages
she always shows up for me.
