You were unlike any boy I had ever fallen for.
You weren’t my first rodeo,
But I was so sure.
You were different from the last.
I had found home within your arms,
Warmth within your deep eyes,
And a love so divine Aphrodite would be jealous
Of that gravitational force within
The beatings of our hearts.
But then you left.
Physically to a different place.
Emotionally to a different world
Coming back only to spew daggers
Straight into my heart.
How could you do that to me?
How could the boy with the kindest soul,
The sweetest laughter,
The gentlest hugs,
How could the boy with a heart so immense,
The one I couldn’t help but fall for
The moment I had laid eyes on him,
Leave me head over heels in love
Only to return six weeks later with
A permanent case of amnesia?
How could you betray me after all we’ve been through?
Wasn’t I enough?
Now when I feel ready to begin anew
Ready to open my heart
I cannot help but fear
In the crevices of my mind
And the tremblings of my beating heart
That the next one I’ll trust
Running away never to return.
The same way you did.
