Walked Away - Poem by maria goodison

I should have carried on and walked away
and never stayed for that drink.
Never laughed at your jokes
and slapped that smile from your face.
I should have been a better person, listened to my brain,
and stayed well away till I caught that train.
I should've never answered your lying smile,
it was a simple task.
