Random Poem:

She Made Sure To Break The Branches

I can't really tell what's coming
It's the "what's going" that really gets me.
The falling asleep at four A.M. evenings,
Only to wake up around three wondering,
“Was I alone during the slumber?
Or drunkenly draped over another?”
That’s for her to decide
and for me to forget.
Your body movements in the bookstore said,
“I've got your good intentions gutted.
And like a fish,
laid upon a table
to be thrown in with the rest of the scraps.
Leave before I break your legs
and you’re left in my web,
you amateur.”
For such a beautiful girl,
I would have never guessed that you would shit on my spotless record.
