Dumb

I see you smile at me from a distance

And my heart jumps at an instant.

You walk towards me with arms wide open

And right past me, to embrace another woman.

I can’t swallow, not even breathe,

Is it real or just a stupid dream?

I don’t know, I can’t tell,

It’s like you shut me into a shell.

I can’t see, I can’t hear,

I can’t hold you when you are near.

You don’t know, you don’t care,

You’ll be happy when my heart will tear.

Why can’t I tell you how I feel?

All the pain you caused me needs to heal.

You said you loved me when we went out,

I was in love with you, no doubt.

Then things got bad and you stopped calling,

I sat by the phone all night bawling.

I moved on in a month or two,

You moved on that night in June.

I forgot your number, I ripped up your letter,

I want you to know I found someone better.

You thought you loved me, I thought I loved you,

But all this time, I didn’t even know you.

And here’s some advice, get some help,

Cause all you’re trying to be is like everyone else.

An outgoing, introverted writer who likes to lie about being outgoing. Talking to her cat at all hours of the night does not count as outgoing; but it doesn't stop her. She is also just as comfortable being at the beach as she is standing in a pile of cactus. If you want to really impress this unique specimen, offer her a box of your best wine.
