I never learned

April 2, 2013 § Leave a comment

I never learned
the art of resistance
to tell the truth
I don’t believe I could
be that strong
and that thing I felt
I was missing
was the thing
I never had
all along

I never learned
to put clues together
just a look from
you was all it took
to set me up to fall
I could turn
a word from you
into a sonnet
even if you said
nothing at all
