And just for thought...
Side by side, we sat, once lovers and now friends.
The words came as you waited for my reply.
Inhaling cigarette smoke and drinking sweet tea,
I offered you now what you were expecting
and barely there emotions, it was all I had to give.
I could tell by your look, your hesitation, my lack of protest hit a core with you.
I put on a smile to put you at ease, to hide my disappointment.
I told you I had a natural talent for landing on my feet.
This was just another event in my grand scheme.
You said you held on to tightly while I replied with pure arrogance.
I no longer wanted to sit with you, once lovers and no longer friends.
Gathering my pack of cigarettes, I stood to leave.
You asked again if I would be all right.
I smiled sadly, saying I would see you around.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
