Bad Poetry Friday

Untitled c. 1994


Mama told me I had what it took

Daddy said I’d break hearts

They were certain I’d be alright

I guess their expectations played the part


I grey up but never was happy

my soul was black and blue

Like my body it was beaten

for a love that wasn’t true


I just pretended til the day he was gone

and I journeyed out into the sun

No book could have taught what I needed to learn


When you’re playing with fire

you’re bound to get burned.
