A Women Who Loved a Boy

Remove your palm from my leg,

It belongs there no more

Take back all your words,

I have no need for them any longer

Retrieve your embrace from my lips,

Your kiss is boring and tastes bitter

Stop gazing at my body further,

It's becoming repetitive and routine

Sop up yesterdays tears quickly,

Return them, you don't deserve them

Give back my torn emotions please,

You don't deserve that weakening satisfaction

But please don't give back the time shared,

For I now know who you really are

Don't forget I once loved you deeply,

Headlines read: The women who loved a boy.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Ok I started this a little while ago and just finished it recently. It's about a women ie: me, who thought she fell in love with a man who seemed all in one perfect. She then finds out that this "man" really isn't a man at all... he is still a little boy inside. It's almost sad that you can see one side of a person and then later find out that they really haven't grown up at all. Yet no matter how old they really are, they are still so damn childish. Isn't that right hun? maybe that was your problem? hmm... it's too bad you lost out.

God, that boy needs to grow up. He didnt know what he lost. seriously. You went through so much pain and it seemed like he didnt even care. He is a "boy" and will probably remain that way.

Good poem! I think that we don't ever really grow up. Even 30, 50, 75 year olds need guidance.

especialy people at this age - as in 19th/20th. they think they've all grown up. yelling things like "Im not a kid anymore!" but i think we are still little kids with ALOT to learn.

hmmmm i wonder if that has anything t odo with the poem?!
meh well it got me thiking in that respect.

great poem!
