"FATE" chose us by mistake
Now my heart's a belly-ache
And my nose may start to swell at any day

True lust that we have found may leave me
Six feet under ground, you see
Her boy friend's fist could put this fool away!

Well, I met her at a bar
Where my oldest friend guitar
Was helping me support my ways and means

She approached me rather fast
And while my instincts said to pass
The devil in me lusted for a scene...

She was living common law
But raised her hand and swore
Her man and her could both do as they please

Yet, somehow we were caught
Now he wants to cut mine off
And the thought off losing all sure makes me Wheeze!!

Not Again


I did it again I hurt someone else.
Not meaning to, I never do intend,
To cause them harm. But I always do.
Even with this one, I tried to say I
Couldn’t love him just because I knew
I was dating Brian. But he fell for me
And he ended up getting hurt.
Not deeply but still, I know that the
Hurt is still there. I told him at the
Beginning that I just couldn’t love him,
And I told him about the other guy
That I was dating. And even still,
He fell for me. It’s the knowing that he was
In love with me that’s the real problem.
Now I feel do deeply badly for him.
Because I knew and I let it go on,
Let him fall for me. That’s the real pain.
I suppose I should have told him,
What I was Aphrodite. But then again,
I did. I just didn’t do it forcefully enough.
Perhaps if I had told him about the dangers
Falling in love with me presented…
But then again, I couldn’t have known,
But then again, maybe it’s my fault.
Because I let him tell me he loved me.
And I responded back with the same.
Maybe that was the real problem.
Even though we both said I ‘love’ you,
Just like that. With apostrophes and all,
The real meaning was right there all along.
I think that now that I am writing this
As a poem, I realize what a mistake that was.
I let the feeling happen. And for that
I am sorry, Gene; I didn’t mean to
Break your heart; for that I am so sorry.

I Am My Own

I want to make
          my own
     mistakes, I say.
I want to direct
          my own
     life, as bad as it is.

Please don't try to
          stop me
     I'm going to anyway.
I know you wanna
          stop me
     you care a lot.

I wanna be my own
     my two feet.
I'm a pretty strong
     I can survive.

We keep having
          this same
     conversation over.
I still feel
          this same
     way, as before.
