Dancing Around The Situation(ship)

December 28th, 2022

I followed your lead
What a disappointment
Thinking you might change
But another canceled appointment
Dancing around the situation
Never to commit
Not even faking friendship
I guess that’s a benefit
I kept my walls up
I never crossed the line
But I have to let go
Of something never mine
So here I say goodbye
To what this could have been
You could never be who I need
So I’ll start all over again

Was There Even An Us?

December 23rd, 2022

I wanted you to take me on that stupid date
Where I could wear my new dress
But you asked if we could stay in instead
And we had fun nonetheless
I wanted to get naked with you
But not the kind without clothes
I’d tell you the details of my life
That nobody else knows
I wanted consistency from you
The one thing you asked of me
But you’d cancel, postpone, and even no-show
Us ending was easy to foresee

The Ugly Truth

December 21st, 2022

I know I kept my walls up
You never had a chance
But you never made an effort
It’s the same old song and dance
“Maybe we’ll get together again down the road”
What does that even mean
What would be different in the future
If you’re “not that interested” in me
I said that I wanted to be friends
But now I don’t know if I can
Most time spent together within bedroom walls
And you had referred to yourself as my man
But I hated that you called me babe
And slept with the window open
Feeling like Katherine Heigl in The Ugly Truth
Because I didn’t want you to know I’m outspoken
Three months and three weeks have passed
Since I sent you that first text
Not sure how to process the ending
When you’re not even my ex

Note: I heard this song this week, and I felt like it needed to go with this poem!
