After “exquisite” became “a display”
And in the span of only one day(!)
However, I did get a breadcrumb today
I suppose I should be grateful
For two seconds of your time
Not sure why I thought you different from those who bait (and switch)
Their passion turning cold, like a dead fish
I felt the icy chill come on last night...
Then all morning long, I missed our play
But your horoscope read today,
“Sadly, you will miss
A rare opportunity thanks to cowardice.”
I laughed before I cried
Oh, how quickly your affection died!
The “goddess,” “divine” no more
As you sailed away to a distant shore
You, you were my wish
Now, I just feel foolish
Loneliness is a terrible disease
And, I am lonely
Tbh, it wasn’t enough...
Fantasies rarely are
I remember saying,
“We’ll never want this to end.”
Not expecting, “Why does it have to?”
But you already knew the answer--
You just neglected to share it with me
(I think that was a blatant attempt at trickery...)
You believe you outsmarted a Ph. D.
But...how clever can you really be
If you let a woman like me get away and flee???
The only person you outsmarted was yourself, my friend
Because, you lost someone who'd have stuck with you 'til the end
Loyalty's not easy to find
Neither is a soul that's both compassionate and kind
And, we can't forget the beauty of my brain
Or, the mega-watt smile that attracts gain after gain
The Double-D's aren't bad either (if you're into that sort of thing)
But my talented tongue...well, that can make a whole body sing
You should be more careful
To avoid playing with people’s hearts
Or, one day, you may find yours pierced
With needle-sharp darts
In truth, you were (mostly) lovely
But when people go away
We have to justify why they didn’t stay
I miss the music
And I miss our song
The one that seemed to hum as we went merrily along...
Unfortunately, trust isn’t easy to (l)earn
Hard, too, to shake the shame of spurn
But I still wish you all the best(!)
From the bird’s eye view of my well-feathered nest
We only ever get one second chance--
Don’t believe me?
Just ask Rosencrantz...
