This is the first of a five-part series of poems written about my first boyfriend, back in high school. The other four are Trapped, You Are Lost to Me, Lost, and
Goodbye and Hello. …You get the picture…he wasn't my best choice of a partner.

He left me to wilt,
To shine my own light,
Took all I’d just enjoyed
Away from me

He’d wanted me
As his
And he’d been the one

He’d made me laugh
Shared all my favorites
Loved to text me all night

But seemed so helpless without me
Before throwing himself out the door
Ruining his grades, he leapt for me
But before he could, all his stepping stones
Were gone
The path to me

What happened there?
Whose fault?
