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


Is there nothing I can do
To prove to her that I like you?
Is she set within her ways,
Or is she ready to be swayed?
Is she doing this for you;
Is it all she knows to do?

All I know is I’ve lost you.
And I know not what to do,
But to turn the blame on me;
Without blame I’m lost at sea.
But, you see, I’ve lied to you,
So I’ll take the pressure too.
