Treasure Island

Stephen Holland

(1958 / Wakefield)

She was the girl who dumped me at school

The Girl Who Dumped Me at School

So into my life walks this girl with no name
And changes my whole way of thinking today
She is dark haired and smiling and so my heart grieves
How do I talk to the girl of my dreams?
I’m uncouth and stupid she’s out of my league
She is so far beyond me I’m led to believe

My defences go up, I try to act cool
She is the girl who dumped me at school

I pursue her with passion, but hung without rope
I’m tongue-tied, embarrassed, exist without hope
Relentless I chase her my sanity bruised
Hormonal and lovestruck and so so confused
‘If loving is this’ when I’m dying inside
I offer my soul to be wrapped up and tied

Life is so pointless and bitter and cruel
She is the girl who dumped me at school

Wonders of Wonders I think she is mine
She reels me in on a hook with no line
A few days of heaven, incredibly proud
I’m walking with giants my head in the clouds
I think she’s my soul-mate one promised to me
Until I am sick with my head on her knees

My soul is laid bare, I am such a fool
She is the girl who dumped me at school

My worst fears have risen ‘it simply won’t work’
‘We still can be friends’ I’m incredibly hurt
It’s like a bereavement except you can’t mourn
I cry on the sofa all night until dawn
I have to be friendly tormented I try
We walked in the park while the months slipped on by

The chapter then closes the book used for fuel
She was the girl who dumped me at school

    this made me smile
    thinking how young love of years back can still be remembered as clearly as it if it was just yesterday.
    and sad things do happen for us to be strong and now at present, we smile when we rember them by.
    nice poem.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
