Actor - Poem by Lindsay King

a year ago
it was all a year ago
when you kissed me badly
like i was the first girl
ever to touch upon
that territory
you tasted like
beer and weed
i was in your arms
you said
all the right words
yes it was ecstasy

a year from then
and it's been over
for quite sometime
we've stopped learning
about each other
'cause we know it all
it doesn't mean that
i can't be sad
because in hindsight
i can say
it wasn't always
that bad

you're not my problem
anymore
i don't have to deal
with the bullshit
that comes with you
you're a drama queen
and maybe that
makes you gay
maybe that doesn't
i think you
just know
how to make a girl
feel like
you're the perfect
man

you're not my problem,
you're her's
and talking to her
is like watching us
all over again
she tells me how
you kissed her badly
like she was the
first one ever
to touch upon
that territory
and you can't be
my perfect man
deep down
if your her's, too

i think i get it now
when you say you're
an 'actor'

    Like he says, and I feel ya

    Men they seem
    Like such a tease
    Talk like a dream
    More like a disease
    They act the part
    Until they're done
    We fall apart
    They act stunned
    The end draws near
    Its so unclear
    How we end up here

    love is really beyond human imagination
    so deep so tragic so filled with delight
    and this poem
    gives deep insight into love
    and for that we thank you
    with a smile also
    good work
