Random Poem:

cafeteria food

I’ll take one last look
Before I leave
Just a single glance
Remembering what you meant to me
Leave me?
You never really needed me
I was just someone
When you had no one
Just something temporary
Like an interest in cafeteria food
I could chase after you
But it’s like chasing after the wind
Always there
But never really
Never ready to settle for
Less than your best
The air that I breathe
I’ll always take you in
But to you
It’s nothing less than sin.
