Random Poem:

You Said Our Romance Was Made For The Movies, But We Ended Up More Like A Tragic Love Song (Revised)

I bet there's another out there
Forsaken by the testosterone running through your veins
Don't regret what you did
Just don't be so sure of it
Your guilt has been lipsticked across these sheets & across these walls
I can read it on your face
By the reflection in your eyes
So fix yourself up like a cheap French harlit
While spitting exhausted lines like, 'It's only strictly business...'
Next time make it more sincere
Hide away in a chintzy hotel like a gypsy
Unfortunately, you have less poise & a worse reputation
