Life Camp - Poem by Christina Ramirez

I guess it's easier to say goodbye when I don't have you standing in front of me
Now my life can go on easily
Words may have been spoken to a degree
But with you miles away this relief has finally been lifted from me.

I'll grant you one last opportunity, despite the arguments of my audience
I'll give myself that lasting assurance
That I won't have to put to plan my new avengance
Beware though that the girl you last saw will be born anew during your absence

Reinventing myself to be someone you'll never recognize
I'll make you stutter and stumble over your words that you'll fail to verbalize
In return you'll apologize
For not seeing me before and you'll capsize like a sinking ship

But don't mistake these words that blurt from my lips
Their not here to make you slip and trip over your failing knees
They are simply equipped to make even the most sturdy of them all fall blistery to the ground
And to find someone who looks like you as my hot new rebound.
