Insincerity - Poem by Angelique' Rockwell

The minute I walked in
You caught my eyes
You seemed so very sincere
Boy was I in for a big surprise

You looked so lost and confused
There had to be something I could do
By the end of the night we'd already kissed
And I wanted to take you to bed too

You helped me with my kids
I gave you a place to stay
When I realized what your priorities were
I told you to walk away

I knew you had a girlfriend
I knew she wanted you back
But I also knew that your stability
Was completely out of whack

By the second day
You'd said the 'L' word
All I could say was
The very thought was absurd

You cried when I was hurt
You swore your love out loud
You held my hand in public
And played 'daddy' just as proud

I couldn't keep my hands off you
And you kept running into walls
Smiles were plastered on our faces
As if we were painted dolls

The sex was quite incredible
Your style so very unique
I couldn't help wanting to try
Any and every technique

But, I never asked for all that
You came in and took your place
And rushed through each faze
As if you were in a race

The problems that arose each day
Were all settled and made dear
So by the end of day nine
It seemed each day was a year

So much had happened
Too quickly and too fast
There is no way a relationship
With our intensity could last

It was day nine that I said goodbye
For you had made it perfectly clear
You were not the man that I first met
And never for you will I shed a tear.
